This Week's Agenda: Goldman Sachs Execs to Testify, Charlie Crist May Leave GOP, Kentucky Derby

Monday, April 26, 2010

We take a look at what's ahead this week, with Marcus Mabry, associate national editor of The New York Times, and Latoya Peterson, editor of the blog Racialicious.

Wall Street tops the news with lawmakers voting on what could become a sweeping overhaul of the financial system, as Goldman Sachs executives are expected to testify before a Senate subcommittee on Tuesday. Plus, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, facing a serious primary opponent from the right in Marco Rubio, might run on an independent ticket for U.S. Senate. In cultural news, the remake of the 1994 horror film classic, Nightmare on Elm Street, comes to theaters on Friday, and the Kentucky Derby kicks off on Saturday.
