The Election: Legal Battles, Historic Turnout.
The Trump campaign is moving to contest the outcome of the election through recounts and legal challenges. Can these court battles delay the results? What are the scenarios for the upcoming days? On another story, in Nevada, a leading organizer explains how the fight for Covid-19 relief, good paying jobs and racial justice fueled the get-out-the-vote canvassing that led to the unprecedented turnout in this battleground state. Finally, in battleground Arizona, a community leader talks about how texting and phone banking efforts in Latino neighborhoods succeeded in helping turn record numbers of Latinos out to the polls and impact the outcome of the election.
Guests: Alicia Contreras, Executive Director, Corazón-Faith in Action, Phoenix, AZ; Geoconda Argüello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer, Culinary Workers Union, Local 226, Las Vegas, NV; Juan Cartagena, President and General Counsel, LatinoJustice – PRLDEF, New York, NY.
