Postcards From The Great Divide: Wa, Nv, Wi

Season 2, Episode 6 of 24

Three episodes from the Postcards from the Great Divide series examine the partisan split among the electorate in Washington, Nevada and Wisconsin. In PURPLE REIGN by Laura Nix, we follow a GOP strategist in the supposedly left-leaning state of Washington, as he works with socially moderate candidates, including a Latino former marine, to win swing districts and change the statehouse balance of power. SWINGING NEVADA by Laura Pacheco and Jackie Mow looks at Nevada, once solidly Republican. But things have changed as more Latinos have moved in. So what's the GOP strategy to win a changing purple state? WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WISCONSIN NICE? by Brad Lichtenstein, explores how the Badger State has become an ideological battleground in recent years and what to expect for the state's political future.
