Episode #394: Women Yes, Abortion Rights Maybe

Debbie Walsh, the director of the Center for American Women and Politics, discusses the number of women running in next week’s elections, and what it might — or might not — say about the future of reproductive rights.

We go back into the archives for an interview with Bill Salisbury, a longtime reporter with the St. Paul Pioneer Press who covered the political career of Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota.  We’re repeating that conversation on the 20th anniversary of Wellstone’s death in a plane crash outside of Eveleth, Minn., 11 days before he was up for re-election.

PLUS:  A review of the Fetterman-Oz debate in Pennsylvania, and reaction to the attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
