Interim Police Chief Jim Pugel On What's Next For SPD

Interim Seattle Police Department Chief Jim Pugel says he hasn't decided whether he'll seek the job, but he doesn't plan to be a placeholder as the SPD works on critical reforms with the Department of Justice. Pugel is set to replace outgoing chief John Diaz, who announced his retirement on Monday. We talk with the new officer in charge at SPD.

Also this hour: a remarkable number of potential 2016 presidential candidates are Catholic, and Catholics have become a critical swing vote. University of Washington professor David Domke joins us to explain why things are changing, and what it means for 2016. Plus, Katy Sewall spends some time on the job with food stylist and photographer Sarah Flotard.
