211. Congressman Ruben Gallego. Can He Win Independents In Arizona? Will Running Vs Sinema Elect Kari Lake? The Latino Independent Vote. Biden’s Train Trip to Kyiv. US Troops Wounded in Syria. Rating The VA Secretary. Fetterman’s Fight With Depression.


America is also still at war at home. Against itself. The races for 2024 are already unfolding. And they look nastier than ever. And independents will be more important than ever. 

And in no place will they be more important than in Arizona. 

And that’s why we invited our guest in this episode to join us once again. 

He’s the man who wants to be the next Senator from the state that elected John McCain. The state that recently elected Astronaut and Navy vet Mark Kelly. And the state that elected now self-proclaimed independent Kirsten Sinema. 

He’s a Marine. He’s a Congressman. He’s a Democrat. And if you’re in Arizona and your an independent, he wants your vote. 

He’s Congressman Ruben Gallego (@RubenGallego). And he’s jumping way into this crazy train that is the 2024 election. 

Congressman Ruben Gallego is a Democrat who represents the 7th District of Arizona and was first elected in 2014. Our host, Paul Rieckhoff, met him years before–when they were both advocates for veterans fighting for a new GI Bill back in 2007/2008. 

He’s a community leader, and the son of Hispanic immigrants. He was the first in his family to attend college– graduating from Harvard University. 

It’s another important, inspiring, iconic American–who is changing what America was, what it is, and what it will be. And it’s another conversation train stacked with 5 cars thaf drive everything we do on this show and from righteous media–the 5 i’s: independence, integrity, information, inspiration and impact. 

Past appearance from Gallego: Episode 113 – May 6, 2021
