I sat down this week with National Journal‘s Josh Kraushaar for his Against the Grain podcast to talk about the midterm outlook, what could go wrong for Republicans, why Democrats have struggled to move the Biden agenda, and take a closer look at the electability of GOP recruits.
I faced off in a friendly “debate” with my colleague Yasmin Nelson on year one of the Biden administration, the outlook for the midterms, and what if anything might happen in the interim. Yasmin is a former senior economic advisor to then-Senator Kamala Harris, and somebody I trust and rely on for insights into what leading Dems are doing or should do. Her analysis runs alongside my “Bottom Line” in our weekly PRG reconciliation update, and she has her own newsletter under The Breakdown banner.

This week we are joined by Molly Ball, TIME National Political Correspondent, CNN Political Analyst, and author of NYT bestseller Pelosi, released this May. Liam and Josh host a discussion about Nancy Pelosi’s influence over key political moments in her House career and her ever-evolving role in American politics, as well as a lengthy dive into Molly’s recent reporting on the politicization of reopening schools amidst the continued COVID-19 crisis.
