After an update on the latest news, Nicole is joined by Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC to talk politics and the challenges of progressive candidates running in 2018. Today, we talked about "The Democrap Establishment Still Doing What They Like Doing Most: Resisting the Resistance" and an article from The Intercept, "THE DEAD ENDERS: Candidates Who Signed Up to Battle Donald Trump Must Get Past the Democratic Party First".
Bernie Sanders proved the pundits and pollsters wrong by winning Indiana by 5 points. Now on to West Virginia. Today, we push back on the right wing narratives about the two Democratic campaigns fundraising with Politico's Ken Vogel and The Intercept's Lee Fang. Today's show was delayed as our power here in South Florida went out just moments before air time. When it came back on and I was still able to get Ken and Lee on to discuss their respective stories, we went for it. Of course, two minutes after ending the show, the power went out again. Welcome to FloriDUH and our fabulous infrastructure.
The 3rd fundraising quarter ended last night. The totals are in, and they're staggering! Nicole discuss that and more with Driftglass and Howie Klein (who yesterday tweeted that a reliable source says Little Debbie is out, to be replaced by Jennifer Granholm!) Lots to discuss today.
