EP 50: Running on Empty


Subscribe:


Kirk, Kristin and Pat talk about the exhausting but rewarding process of getting on the ballot to run for office—and how some people who've tried to take shortcuts failed at it. They also discuss three important elections that are under the radar of most voters. And after a review of Ron Johnson's new website about "truth," they discuss the declining value of law enforcement endorsements in a period where the politicians they endorse may be hostile to some voters' rights... or voting itself.
