Joe Biden
Evan Vucci
President Joe Biden delivers a speech marking the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, at the Royal Castle Gardens, Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2023, in Warsaw.

President Biden makes an unannounced trip to Kyiv. On Cincinnati Edition, we'll discuss the Republican response to his trip and how it exposes divisions in the party regarding U.S. support for Ukraine.

Plus, the evidence is piling up in Dominion Voting Systems’ lawsuit against Fox News. A legal brief in the case alleges that Fox personalities who spread misinformation about the 2020 election knew it was false. We'll discuss the case.

Then, the Republican race for president is starting to shape up. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy have announced their candidacies. Ramaswamy is a native of Butler County and the author of Woke, Inc. We'll discuss how they are positioning themselves in the party.

All that, and your questions, for our full hour of politics with Ken Rudin.
