View the Slideshow

The first week of August recess has ended for members of Congress, but that doesn't mean they had time off. Weekend America Host Bill Radke talks with Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak about what recess really means for those in Congress. Then, this weekend is the Iowa Straw Poll, the official fundraiser for the state's Republican Party. There will be a lot of schmoozing and also a lot of barbecue. We asked some caterers what they are serving and got their perspective on the Iowa Straw Poll.
