There is news today that retail sales went up 1.2 percent in May. More on that. Plus, Costco is closing in on becoming the biggest car retailer in the nation, thanks to a policy of selling cars at a fixed, discounted price. And no, they don’t come in packs of two. We’ll also talk to Univision’s Leon Krauze about the Mexican midterm elections this past weekend.
