Steve Inskeep from NPR’s "Morning Edition" has been spending time in Charlotte this week as part of a nationwide series that began today on NPR. Inskeep discussed coverage of this election so far.

We also hear from Inskeep about the new book he released this year, "Imperfect Union: How Jessie and John Fremont Mapped the West, Invented Celebrity and Helped Cause the Civil War," the story of an 1800s husband-and-wife team who are known for their work in the westward expansion of the U.S.
