You win some and you lose some and that’s what happened in the off-year election, the Democrats losing the Virginia governorship but holding onto New Jersey. And then the spin began and that’s where we begin our conversation this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Podcast when Halli and her partner in politics, former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper sit down to discuss the latest political news.
You win some and you lose some. Question: Who is the better spinner, Democrats or Republicans? Is the glass half-empty or half-full? Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated former Democratic Governor McAuliff, but history shows that the party in power in Washington almost always loses Virginia off-year elections. It’s been 40 years since a Democrat one two consecutive terms in New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy did. But on the theme of good news and bad news, the Covid-19 vaccination for children has been approved, but despite a growing vaccination rate in the U.S. and abroad, Covid-19 is on the rise in Europe. The House is expected to finally pass the Infrastructure Bill and the Build Back Better Plan. That’s good news. The bad news: They didn’t pass either prior to the election. There’s more news on Donald Trump, on voting rights legislation, climate change, the Steele Dossier, the January 6 Committee and much more.
You win some and you lose some. Will the Democrats be able to win the vote of West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin on the Build Back Better Plan? Will NYSD lose in its efforts to indict former President Trump? Jobs, jobs, jobs! There is a lot more in political news.
