In the debut episode, Senior Reporter Tim Murphy profiles the candidates ripping up West Virginia’s political blueprint and asks what their successes and failures mean for national politics come November. In Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams just enjoyed a spectacular, history-making victory to become the first black woman to ever to win a major party’s gubernatorial nomination, but her toughest battle is ahead: Can this national political darling beat a well-funded Republican, in a deep-red state, to break another glass ceiling and become the first female black governor in America? Then it’s time for resident Russia guru David Corn to make the extraordinarily complicated Mueller investigation understandable. We’ll also chat to David Beard, the author of our weekly Recharge newsletter, giving you a jolt of good news.
