We wrap up on the GA-06 race from last week. We beat down bad ideas around Nancy Pelosi and then move on to Trumpcare. It's a comprehensive pod!
Let's talk about the sixth, baby.
Georgia's sixth congressional district is a heavily Republican leaning district. Yet, it's now the most expensive race in the history of our country and being presented as a make or break for the Democratic Party in the aftermath of the Trumpocalypse.
We talk with Nse Ufot, the wonderful Executive Director of the New Georgia Project who has been working day and night to turn key groups out and remake the electorate. She teaches us why this district is a microcosm of Georgia, a state that she explains is very competitive and challenges our perception of. Then she gives us the feel for what's happening on the ground in this district that carries the hopes of the Resistance.
As Comey prepares to testify and comes out of his quantum of solace. We discuss the potential damage and results from his testimony. Or will it be non-explosive a turn out to give Trump the opportunity to die another day.
This pod goes deep into talking about activism with Kaili Lambe who recently helped lead the People's Climate March of Colorado and has been diligently working with Together We Will in Colorado. What has gone well? What are the challenges? How do we respond to diversity and social differences?
We also spend (32:04) some time with the wonderful Arielle Swernoff, the Executive Director of LaunchProgress who's organization has undertaken the slow, grinding but crucial work of building a bench and long game in places like North Carolina, Ohio and Michigan.
