This Week on Bill Nye, Pro-Life Democrats, and the Future of NASCAR
< 1 day ago
Mary Katharine Ham, senior writer, and Gracy Olmstead, associate managing editor, host the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss the tension between the DNC and pro-life democrats, the outrage at Bill Nye, and the retirement of Dale Earnhardt Jr. from NASCAR.
Bernie Sanders and Tom Perez received blowback after endorsing a pro-life candidate for mayor of Omaha. The Cecile Richards view is the view of the Democratic Party and now they are saying you cant have another [view] in this party, Ham said. Thats fairly dangerous to building a coalition that can actually win.
NASCAR race attendance is down, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. may have been the best face to bring in both the older and younger fans. Its a real open question where the sport goes from here. Its an interesting evolution of a sport that really was this niche southern working class sport, Ham said.
