Justin Kaufmann

DES MOINES, IOWA – FEBRUARY 04: Local resident Wallace Mazon holds a sign outside the Iowa Democratic Party headquarters February 4, 2020 in Des Moines, Iowa. The announcement of the results in the Iowa presidential caucuses has been delayed after “inconsistencies” were found late Monday night relating to the app used to process the votes. The state Democratic Party said that the results will be manually verified before being released. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)

Political consultant Thom Serafin joins Justin to talk about what is happening with the Iowa caucus results, if there is a need to “recanvass,” the importance for Democrats to win Iowa, if Illinois should replace Iowa and hold the first primary of the season, if Illinois is actually the most representative of the entire country and why people are moving out of Illinois. Thom also talks about his role in a play called, “Unnecessary Farce.” You can find all the details about the show here.
