Interviews with: Gov. Glenn Youngkin, Sen. Chris Murphy, Ambassador Bill Richardson
State of the Union
Oct 9, 2022

First, Jake presses Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin on whether he supports the Federal Reserve potentially raising interest rates to get inflation under control and on his administration’s policy requiring that students’ bathrooms and sports teams are based on their sex assigned at birth and not their gender identity. Then, after President Biden delivered a warning about potential nuclear “Armageddon” with Russia, Senator Chris Murphy joins to discuss whether Biden was right to raise the issue of nuclear conflict. Afterwards, former UN Ambassador Bill Richardson shares details from his recent trip to Russia and his conversations to free detained American citizens Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan.

On today’s panel, Mia Love, Nina Turner, Scott Jennings and Bakari Sellers join Jake to discuss whether Georgia Republicans will support Herschel Walker after allegations that he paid for a woman’s abortion in 2009 and about the possible lack of enthusiasm among Democratic voters ahead of the midterm elections.
