Elections Podcast: The Delegate Hunt Begins

We’re coming to D.C! We just announced our first-ever live show, in Washington on May 4. Get your tickets now, and help spread the word to anyone in the D.C. area. (And don’t worry, we’ll be doing more live shows in other cities throughout the summer and fall.)

In this episode, the elections podcast crew begins to track the Republican candidates’ hunt for sympathetic delegates as the possibility of a contested convention appears to grow. Then, producer Galen Druke discusses the ins and outs of Wisconsin’s political landscape in the run-up to the state’s primary on Tuesday. Plus: How would you describe Donald Trump’s coalition to someone who hasn’t been following the election?
