Tennessee: The battle for the conservative crown

Episode Notes

An orthopedic surgeon with Indian immigrant parents. A former ambassador with ties to Trump and Mitt Romney. Both pro-life and pro-gun. Both criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement. Two Republicans vie for who is more conservative as a Tennessee Senate race heats up. POLITICO's Alex Thompson talks about why this race is a reflection on larger shifts in the party.
