  1. Enjoyed this fascinating exchange of ideas from two astute and renowned experts. Wonder what you both think of the results of the New York Democratic primaries where insurgents won by relatively wide margins. Jamaal Bowman’s upset over 16-term incumbent, Eliot Engel, seems iconic. AOC crushed her well-financed opponent. And Demaire Jones, a Black LGBTQ+ progressive, won his race. In other states, while the results are still not available in Kentucky, Charles Booker now leads Amy McGrath by a substantial margin. Even though Booker spent only 2% as much as McGrath’s $40-million budget, he struck a chord in Kentucky. Is there a progressive trend?
