Episode 8: The State of the GOP, with former Chief of Staff to Speaker John Boehner Mike Sommers
Following Tuesday's elections, we wanted to take a deep dive into the state of the Republican Party, and we talked to John Boehner's former Chief of Staff, Mike Sommers! There was a great profile of Boehner in POLITICO (https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/10/29/john-boehner-trump-house-republican-party-retirement-profile-feature-215741) that we talked with Mike about, in addition to hearing his thoughts about the current state of Republicans in the House. Our ad of the week is a 2016 spot from Minnesota Democrat Rick Nolan, who is one of the dozen Democrats who carried a Trump district. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=30&v=bywwTaJe5Xo)!
