Big Win for Democrats, Small Debate for Republicans

In This Episode

Democrats pull out critical wins for abortion rights in Ohio and Andy Beshear in Kentucky, and deal a big blow to Glenn Youngkin in Virginia. Jon, Dan, and Tommy discuss how Democrats did it, and what it all could mean for Joe Biden next fall. Then, did somebody say “ship gap”?? The third Republican debate goes in some very odd directions—while the front-runner shows off his own brand of crazy at a Florida rally.
