Wisconsin’s High-Stakes Fight for Rights

This past month, the country watched as the most expensive state judicial race in history took place in Wisconsin, with Democrat Janet Protasiewicz securing the seat and flipping the Wisconsin State Supreme Court to a 4-3 majority. Heidi and Joel talk with Sarah Godlewski, Wisconsin’s Secretary of State, about what this victory means for women's rights in rural America and Republican attempts to suppress the youth vote.

Then, we hear Yoshi Gaitan’s story, Student Body President at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and one of the organizers on the ground who played a pivotal role in getting students to the polls.

We find out what helped drive record-breaking voter turnout in Wisconsin, how a growing youth vote impacted the election, and what we can learn about rural voters for future elections in America.
