Hour 1: We’re joined by columnist, political analyst, author and podcast host Cliff Schecter. They talk about whether the national media is underestimating Democrats chances this fall, Republicans refusal to appeal to suburban voters and more. Then will Republicans resort to political violence when elections don’t go their way? And how Republican leaders who call for “revolution” will never actually go to the front lines.
Hour 2: Our Democrat of the Day is Lucy Rehm, candidate for state house district 48B, which includes Chanhassen and other surrounding communities in the southwest metro. The Star Tribune releases a poll showing that a “narrow” majority of Minnesotans (52-40 %) oppose the overturning of Roe vs. Wade. Politico reports a Minnesota District Court denied Mike Lindell’s motion to throw out a lawsuit brought by a voting technology company that claims he defamed it by pushing the false narrative that the 2020 election was stolen. Secretary of State Republican candidate Kim Crockett was quoted in a 2018 podcast interview saying, “I’m not willing to get up in the morning and go work for people who aren’t from here.” And yet another story of a fatal ATV accident in Minnesota.
