8/2 Primary Day: What To Watch And What Will Be The Impact Of Roe?

August 2, 2022

Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day as primaries begin – including a Roe referendum in Kansas – and Pelosi arrives in Taiwan. Sam and Emma first dive into DeSantis’ decision to disobey federal protections for LGBTQ students, increasing monkeypox numbers, and the assassination of Ayman Al-Zawahiri, before they dive deep into today’s Arizona primaries, including the absurd race for the Republican nomination for Governor and the Kelly vs Masters head-to-head for the senate. They also touch on the massive impact of the Dobbs decision on Democratic voters’ enthusiasm to turn out in the midterms (with likely voters up from 29-64%), look at both sides of the Missouri senate race, Donald Trump’s endorsement of the one and only “ERIC!” and explore why Democrats are throwing their weight behind GOP primary challenger John Gibbs. Next, they look at the common theme among Democratic primaries that boils down to “progressive jew vs. AIPAC-funded conservative,” with a bit of a focus on Andy Levin’s fight in Michigan, before having an extended discussion on Kansas’ reproductive rights referendum, the fight to get Democrats out with few Democratic primaries in the state, and the general role that the shadow of Dobbs will play in the midterms.

And in the Fun Half: Emma and Sam host John from San Antonio’s in-depth primary preview, from Kansas’ referendum to the net gains to expect from Democrats in Congress and Progressives writ large, Brandon Straka can’t believe his friends are upset with his conversation with the DOJ and puts a trigger warning for “honesty” in his public response. Gregory from Oklahoma dives into his recent campaign setback and their direction moving forwards. Lefty Luci discusses Texas’ power grid, Ari from Georgia discusses right-wing extremism and fending off the black pill, and Lauren Boebert denounces the dog-eat-unarmed dog world of communist Venezuela. Bestie from North Dakota has an extended conversation on engaging with conservative family members in a post-Roe world, plus, your calls and IMs!
