For the first time in American history, the Speaker of the House of Representatives was ousted in a vote of no confidence.
On this weekly roundup, host Ron Steslow and guests Mike Madrid (Lincoln Project cofounder) and Scott Tranter (Investor and Advisor to Decision Desk HQ) discuss the Republican infighting, the reforms Matt Gaetz asked for, what it means, and where we go from here.
Then they break down Robert F. Kennedy Jr. teasing a third party presidential run, who it could help and who it could hurt.
Finally, they look at the organized labor stories all over the headlines and what the renewed strength of organized labor could mean for our elections.
