Five more states have nominated party candidates for November’s mid term elections.  

Republicans, Democrats, Independents and Tea Partiers were all in serious contention in last night’s primaries. Whether or not you live in one of the states that held a primary last night, the elections may still impact you.  Smart politicians adapt quickly; the lessons learned tonight, they will likely carry with them to November's election. Moreover, the issues that affected those statewide elections may also be playing out in your state as well.



In this conversation, we speak with two political animals to help us decode last night’s election results.  Reihan Salam is a political blogger for the National Review.  Mark Alexander served as the senior campaign advisor for Barack Obama’s presidential nomination.
