SCRAPPY TIME – NextGen

Tonight on Scrappy Time Jay spends some time with Kylie Sliger, an 18-year-old first-time voter who has been volunteering on political campaigns for several years, and Ali Lawson, a 22-year-old senior business analytics major with a blue-collar background. These young people break down what motivates them to participate in politics and what issues they think will drive more young people to the polls to vote.

We also have some fun playing a game with Blount County elementary students Ella Russell, Kija Burr, Sunny Burr and their mother Stephanie. The game is called “Where’s the Moon?” and it’s a hoot!

Why All Dems Support Medicaid Expansion with Sheila Younglove

Senate Candidate District 16, Sheila Younglove, joins us again to answer the question: Why Medicaid Expansion is supported by every Democrat running for state office. It is because it is outrageous that affordable health care for thousands of Tennesseans has barely been discussed in the General Assembly since Governor Haslam’s Insure Tennessee was rejected in committee in 2014. With the pandemic, an estimated 750,000 Tennesseans could become uninsured! It is unlikely that the 3rd legislative session will even consider adopting Medicaid Expansion as have 38 states.  We really need some change in our state government. Vote wisely.

HOLLER PODCAST – Brandon Thomas

Tennessee State House candidate Brandon Thomas joins us to discuss his race in one of the most flippable districts in the state. He is running a progressive campaign against Republican incumbent Mike Sparks who was recently asked by The Holler whether or not the Civil War was fought over slavery, to which he responded “I haven’t really studied it.” Brandon is running in State House District 49 (Smyrna, Murfreesboro, and La Vergne).

REP MIKE SPARKS can’t say whether the CIVIL WAR was fought over SLAVERY or not!

Representative Mike Sparks of Smyrna can’t answer whether the Civil War was fought over slavery. This coming right on the heels of Sparks pleading with the Capitol Commission to keep the bust of the first Grand Wizard of the KKK in the Tennessee State Capitol.

Peak white supremacy.

Brandon Thomas is running against Sparks.
