Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III Talks Politics Tomorrow on CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY, 12/1
Washington Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III might be the one thing that can bring Republicans and Democrats together, reports CBS News National Correspondent Chip Reid in a report that will be broadcast Dec. 1 on CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network.
In a short time, the 22-year-old Griffin has earned a lot of fans on Capitol Hill. Political leaders, such as Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and former Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, have noticed the rising star. Van Hollen tells Reid, “I think Congress would love to trade our approval ratings for his approval ratings, and the reason is he’s able to bring people together.”
Besides football, Griffin knows a thing or two about politics. He attended Baylor University and graduated in just three years with a political science major. “I definitely pay attention to politics,” he tells Reid.
Anthony Mason and Rebecca Jarvis are the co-hosts of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY. Michael Rosen is the Executive Producer of CBS THIS MORNING: SATURDAY.
