Observer Podcast Episode 10: Running down the Run-offs

Observer staff writers Patrick Michels and Forrest Wilder their favorite run-off races in this tenth episode of the Observer Podcast.

In this episode, we mentioned Texas State Board of Education candidate Gail Spurlock’s claim that the Pilgrims were communists. See the video in which she makes this claim on TFN Insider. Spurlock cited articles from the Heritage Foundation and Hoover Institute to back up her insistence that the folks who landed at Plymouth Rock were communists.
