Episode #121: The Underdogs Eye Wisconsin; It All Began With Rankin

Donald Trump manages to keep piling up delegates as his negatives rise as well.  Longtime Republican strategist Ed Goeas, who is part of the stop Trump movement, is convinced that his plummeting numbers among GOP women mean he is far from guaranteed of winning the nomination.

Next up is Tuesday’s primary in Wisconsin.  Julia Azari of Marquette University talks about what’s at stake in the Badger State.

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran, who broke with the GOP line and said that the Senate should hold confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, is getting angry blowback from conservatives.  Dave Helling of the Kansas City Star questions whether that could jeopardize his seat in the August primary.

Finally, it was 99 years ago this week when Jeannette Rankin, a Republican from Montana, became the first woman in history sworn into Congress.  House historian Matt Wasniewski talks about the role Rankin played in history.
