Republican Senator Mike Lee declares victory, Independent candidate Evan McMullin concedes defeat -- but let's not gloss over the numbers -- let's get granular -- in SLCO -- Evan is up 17% over Mike. Hypothetical question: what if McMullin would have run as a democrat -- would that have mattered? For an overall loss -- this is a win. Statewide Lee is up 14% -- but let's remember last election -- Lee won by 41%. James Curry, Political Science Professor at the University of Utah joins the show.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Utah has been reliably red for decades, however, the Beehive State has attracted more media attention than expected during the 2022 midterms, as the Senate race became much more competitive than pundits would have ever guessed. For weeks, Independent challenger Evan McMullin was narrowly behind two-time Republican incumbent Senator Mike Lee. While the latest polls suggest Sen. Lee's lead growing, a surprise McMullin win would make the GOP's chances of reclaiming power in the Senate more challenging. Earlier this week on the FOX News Rundown, host Jessica Rosenthal spoke to both Sen. Lee and Even McMullin separately about their campaigns and this unusual race. Sen. Lee explained how he plans to prioritize key voter concerns like inflation and border security, why he believes his Senate opponent is campaigning as an Independent, and his hopes that the midterms will 'counterbalance' the White House with a Republican-controlled Congress. McMullin discussed why as a conservative independent he is committed to working across party lines to get things done, why he promises not to caucus with the Democrats, and why an Independent can best represent Utahans in Washington.

Independent challenger Evan McMullin is reportedly narrowly behind two-time Republican incumbent Senator Mike Lee, with one poll suggesting there are still over 10 percent of Utahns undecided ahead of Election Day. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) joins the Rundown to explain how he plans to prioritize key voter concerns like inflation and border security, why he believes his Senate opponent is campaigning as an Independent, and his hopes that the midterms will ‘counterbalance' the White House with a Republican-controlled Congress.   The Supreme Court is hearing two cases regarding the race-based admission programs of Harvard University and the University of North Carolina. While Harvard is facing accusations of discrimination against white and Asian American students, plaintiffs against the University of North Carolina are arguing against the use of race as a factor within the admissions process. FOX News Legal Contributor and Law Professor at George Washington University Jonathan Turley joins the Rundown to discuss the legality of affirmative action policies and the impact the cases could have on admissions and diversity in universities across the country.   Plus, commentary by FOX News Contributor Deroy Murdock.

Firing Line with Margaret Hoover

Independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin talks to Margaret Hoover about his race against Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee, which could potentially determine which party controls the chamber. Although he is a lifelong conservative and he has vowed not to caucus with either party if he wins, McMullin's bid to unseat Lee has the backing of Utah's Democratic Party. He explains how he built a cross-partisan coalition that has made this Senate race the state's most competitive one in decades. McMullin, who ran for president as an independent in 2016 with Sen. Lee's support, discusses Lee's evolution into a loyal ally of former President Donald Trump. He also lays out his argument that Lee betrayed the Constitution by trying to overturn the 2020 election—even if Senator Lee ultimately voted to certify the results on January 6th. McMullin addresses Utah Sen. Mitt Romney's decision not to endorse either candidate in the race, former Vice President Mike Pence's support for Lee, and whether America needs a new political party to compete with Democrats and the GOP. Support for “Firing Line for Margaret Hoover” is provided by Stephens Inc., Robert Granieri, Charles R. Schwab, The Fairweather Foundation, Asness Family Foundation, The Rosalind P.

EPISODE 63: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:46) I cannot be certain which scumbag I hate more today: Joe Scarborough or Samuel Alito. It's amazing that a shameless venomous opportunist, whose behavior for 30 years implies a damaged psyche, has the nerve to attack and not celebrate the recovery from stroke of an honest politician (5:30) Scarborough is the political whore who tried to mainstream Trump on MSNBC yet never once asked him "Why do you say things that make no sense?" or "Have you had an aneurysm or concussion?" or "Have you used drugs that can interfere with or damage your cognitive ability?" (7:27) His attack on Fetterman is worse than it seems because for every American recovering from injury or illness, it is a slap in their face from a creature not worthy of any position of influence in this business or this society (10:30) And "Justice" Samuel Alito, who has now failed mathematics, history, and ethics, may still be worse after his self-martyring speech to a fascist group (15:20) Perhaps Alito can resign and be replaced by an attorney who once defended the murderer of an abortion doctor. The attorney was named Joe Scarborough.

EPISODE 56: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) SPECIAL COMMENT: The old sports phrase is "No Pain, No Gain." The political corollary is: "No Pain, No Gain - But No Brain, No Pain." This is proved by Herschel Walker's latest lie about the abortion he paid for (3:00) To say nothing of similar amazingly stupid deceit from Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, Donald Trump, Kanye West, and Elon Musk (5:53) And yet the World Championship may be held by the new U.K. government. Only on Day 41 and already a lame duck, Prime Minister Liz Truss doesn't show up to face the House of Commons and when someone jokes she's hiding under a desk, Truss's stand-in answers seriously "I can assure the house she is not under a desk."

Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day as we get into the final weeks before the 2022 Midterm elections. They begin by running through updates on the Oklahoma City governor's race, the Fed's labor crunch and subsequent recession, and student loan relief, before talking protest, discourse, and soup in relation to great art. Emma and Sam briefly dive into updates on early voting polling (and how the Right is already cultivating doubt behind it), then watch a Swing Voters Project video that perfectly illustrates the success of John Fetterman's campaign, seeing the bipartisan view of Dr. Oz as an out-of-touch elite, and a lack of issue with Fetterman's health issues and approach to criminal justice, before jumping to the Ohio Senate race as Tim Ryan takes a page out of the Fetterman book, targeting JD Vance's complete lack of beliefs outside of subservience to Donald Trump. Wrapping up the midterm review, Sam and Emma watch the recent Senate debate as pro-lifer Evan McMullin calls out Senator Mike Lee's role in the special electors' scheme. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma cover the censorship of Katie Halper's coverage of Israeli apartheid by the Hill (and the minimal response in support of her), David from North Carolina discusses his state's senate race, and the crew discusses the role of “threat to democracy” actually will play in this election.
