TIM PHELAN (Head of the Connecticut Retail Merchants Association) Tim talked about the current holiday shopping season. What's he hearing from local retailers? How has 2015 been for the state's retailers? What's ahead for 2016?

ANDY MARKOWSKI (Connecticut state director for the National Federation of Independent Businesses) Andy chatted about the past year for independent businesses, and talk about what's ahead in 2016 for Connecticut's independent businesses.

DENNY GATES (CEO of "DonateCars4Wishes") Denny joined us again to chat about a charity auction coming up to benefit Make A Wish Connecticut. A CT resident has donated a 1903 Buckmobile (see photos below) to Donate Cars 4 Wishes, which is Connecticut’s nonprofit vehicle donation program that benefits Make A Wish Connecticut. There are only 4 such cars in the world, 3 are in museums and the one that was just donated to DC4W. Only 40 were ever produced by the Buckmobile Company of Utica, NY. The car’s appraised value is $55,925 and it comes with the only spare axle in the world, which has an appraised value of its own of $20,000. The average donated vehicle to Donate Cars 4 Wishes has a value of about $1,000. The car will be auctioned with the proceeds to benefit Make A Wish Connecticut.

Fox News Radio's JARED HALPERN (Live from Washington) TRUMP SEXIST REAX/BILL CLINTON OH HRC CAMPAIGN Donald Trump on Saturday night slammed Hillary Clinton by citing her husband's history of marital infidelity and alleged sexual misconduct, escalating the increasingly personal feud between the GOP front-runner and the leading Democratic presidential candidate.

"Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE'S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate!" Trump tweeted.

The "penchant for sexism" line refers to an interview Hillary Clinton gave earlier in the week to the Des Moines Register, when she used those words to describe the real estate mogul after he said she got "schlonged" in her 2008 primary loss to then-Sen. Barack Obama, a remark widely seen as sexist.

JEFF BIRNBAUM (Fox News political analyst, Washington Times columnist and president of BGR Public Relations) MASS DEPORTATIONS OF ILLEGAL MMIGRANTS SCHEDULED FOR NEXT MONTH A large scale deportation of illegal immigrants living in the US could come as early as January. The Department of Homeland Security reportedly plans to target illegal-immigrants from Central America.
