Republican presidential candidates, from left, Jon Huntsman, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

The Republican Presidential candidates are debating at Dartmouth College on Tuesday, in a debate that focuses on the economy. We talk with two close observers of the presidential race, Linda Fowler, a Professor of Government at Dartmouth College and an expert on presidential primaries, and Matt Dickinson, a professor of political science at Middlebury College, who specializes in the presidency. They discuss the issues and politics of the Republican primary.

Also on the program, in 1880, Rutland was Vermont's largest and most prosperous city. But a controversial political move in 1886 forever changed that. VPR's Nina Keck reports that a new novel delves into the events and the man behind the division of Rutland.
