Why November is a 'once-in-a-lifetime' opportunity for Democrats

Episode Notes

In 2010, Republicans won state houses across the country and redrew electoral maps to their advantage. Now, as President Trump trails in the polls, Democrats see an opportunity to take back power. POLITICO's Natasha Korecki explains why the party is starting to think bigger than just beating Trump — and what message Biden needs to send to help Dems in down-ballot races. Plus, America's coronavirus death toll tops 130,000. And the Supreme Court says states can punish "faithless" electors.
