The recent in-person primary election held in Wisconsin — despite COVID-19 quarantine! — raised some serious questions about democracy and disenfranchisement in the United States. On this episode of "The Tuff Juice Podcast," Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes joins Caron Butler to talk about why the controversial election happened despite Governor Tony Evers’ order to postpone it, who benefited from forcing it through, pandemic politicization, what the primary teaches us about the November general election, his message to people who think their votes don’t matter, what the pandemic has revealed about our healthcare system and economy, and more. Listen up and don’t let anyone strip you of your power!
