Episode #73: 2022 Midterms Deep Dive – Kansas and Arizona, with guest Tom Pappert

Download this episode

For this deep dive into the 2022 midterms, The Right Take guys take a closer look at the Kansas primaries. Aside from the marquee races for Governor and Attorney General, the state also held a ballot initiative that would remove the “constitutional right” to an abortion from the state’s constitution, and allow the state legislature to pass stricter bans on the practice; the measure failed in a landslide, in an ostensibly red state. To explain how this happened and what it means, they once again talk to the founder of Valiant News, and Kansas resident, Tom Pappert. Tom, Jacob, and Eric then recap the absolute clean sweep by MAGA candidates in the crucial state of Arizona, and whether or not the state is on the verge of a massive red wave in November.
