Nicole Sandler and Dave Johnson recap the 2018 midterm elections. Sadly, Beto O'Rourke didn't win. But, as his concession speech shows, he's the real deal. I'm sure we'll see him again, hopefully soon!
After an update on the news of the day, we welcome Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny.com and the Blue America PAC back to the show to talk politics.

It's a busy day on the show, as Nicole Sandler hosts The Clash over Campaign Cash, a debate between Move to Amend's David Cobb and Shaun McCutcheon, who won his suit claiming aggregate limits on the amount of money an individual can contribute to a political party or the number of Federal candidates is unconstitutional at the Supreme Court. In the first hour, Nicole welcomes Tim Canova, the law professor and political activist challenging Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the primary.

Plus, Nicole airs her interview with Carl Safina, animal expert and author of "Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel" recorded last week.
