Ali Velshi Sends Dispatch from the CNN Express

This week, we spoke with CNN chief business correspondent Ali Velshi who is out on the road for the second time this month with the ol’ CNN Express. He’s talking with Americans across the country about health care and how they’re being affected by the economy. This morning, he and the Express are on the south side of Chicago where more people will be sharing their views and, presumably, talking smack about the Cubs. Ali tells us from the road, “The Express has logged 900 miles since leaving Atlanta on Monday, en route to Minneapolis, then to DC.”

Ali and his team put together this short dispatch just for TVNewser to tell us more about how things are going:

We’ll be following Ali’s trip at @Alivelshi and @CNNExpress and CNN will be broadcasting his reports. This week will finish with a taping of the show with the most dollar signs in television, “Your $$$$$,” from some location on the road.
