A look inside one of the closest congressional races this year, New York’s 19th. Former Gist guest and Bernie Sanders–favorite Zephyr Teachout takes on Republican state Assemblyman John Faso for an open seat. The race is one of the few that the Cook Political Report has labeled a toss-up, and it’s a microcosm for lots of American anxieties. Teachout opposes fracking and supports carbon pricing in a district that relies heavily on cars, while Faso is an anti-Trump Republican who hasn’t even said who he’ll be voting for come Election Day.In The Spiel, the antics of James Comey, explained.  Our Sponsors: Harry’s.
