Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Mostly encouraging news for female candidates and progressives who won in a number of places in Tuesday's primaries in Oregon, Idaho, Nebraska and Pennsylvania, where Democrats hope to pick up as many as 6 seats from Republicans in their bid to retake the U.S. House this November. But some voters in Pennsylvania were again prevented from voting, turned away because the 100% unverifiable touch-screen electronic voting systems failed in the first hour of polling. In Idaho, progressive Democrat Paulette Jordan became the first Native America woman to win the party's nomination for Governor. The reported results pose an interesting test for progressives this fall, who have long argued that more bold progressive candidates will perform better in general elections than so-called "Republican lite" candidates. Then Constitutional law expert and author IAN MILLHISER discusses the stolen U.S. Supreme Court's ruling this week striking down a 1992 federal ban on sports betting in all states but Nevada as an unconstitutional "commandeering" of state's rights. Millhiser explains why progressives should be very happy about the Court's ruling this week, and why it may be bad news for the Trump Administration, along with some news about a new adverse ruling against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Finally: thousands of teachers shut down schools in yet another so-called "red" state (North Carolina) on Wednesday, marching in support of higher pay and more funding for schools. Its a potential signal that anything may now be possible, even in red states...if voters get out to the polls, are allowed to vote, and are able to make sure their votes are counted as cast this November...  Brad Friedman, Ian Millhiser, Desi Doyen
