Join Jim and Greg as they celebrate the end of the Bernie Sanders campaign, knowing an avowed socialist will not be president. They also weigh in on the thorny debate over how much our private health data ought to be available to the government as it navigates the COVID-19 crisis. And after forgetting Lincoln Chafee was running for president as a Libertarian, Jim and Greg comment on his second straight campaign implosion.
Nothing but crazy martinis today! First, Jim and Greg react to news that former Republican, Democrat, and independent Lincoln Chafee is now a Libertarian and thinking about running for president with his new party in 2020. They also slam the Democratic National Committee for recoiling at the idea of Politico’s Tim Alberta asking questions at the December presidential debate because he spent a year writing for National Review. And they examine South Dakota’s attention-grabbing drug prevention campaign entitled, “Meth. I’m On It.”
Ron Paul has stopped actively campaigning and Governor Romney has secured enough GOP delegates to win the Republican nomination. Radio America’s Vanessa Oblinger discusses the challenges and opportunities Romney faces to win over Paul supporters. Brian Doherty, the senior editor at Reason Magazine and author of “Ron Paul’s Revolution” explains why Romney may have a very difficult time winning over those voters. Gus Portela of the College Republican National Committee tells us why he thinks libertarians will naturally gravitate to the GOP nominee.
