278. Jared Young. Independent Candidate for US Senate From Missouri. Can He Beat Josh Hawley & Lucas Kunce? Who Is He, What Does He Stand For, How Does He Define Independent? Congress Finally Delivers for Ukraine. Kennedy’s Whole Family Endorses Biden.

Welcome to the first installment of our groundbreaking “Meet The 2024 Independent Candidates” series—highlighting independent candidates of all kinds, for all levels of office, from all across America. 

America, meet Jared Young (@VoteJaredYoung). Jared is the independent candidate for Senate from Missouri running against Republican incumbent Senator Josh Hawley and underperforming Democrat Lucas Kunce. It’s a monumental task but he’s focused and he’s organized. He’s got a plan and maybe even a little momentum. It’s a fascinating look behind the scenes of a campaign on the move and a great way to kick-off the series. Hear why he is running, why he thinks he can overcome the odds and maybe most importantly, how he defines independent and what it means to him.

If you’re interested in independent politics—or American politics in general—this is a can’t miss. If you’re an independent, you’ve found your home.

Your host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) rips into all of it in this all new episode of Independent Americans. And hits Speaker of the House Johnson pushing the big Ukraine funding bill through Congress, Trump’s trial, and some national and global security headlines you won’t don’t get from most other news shows… yet. Because on Independent Americans, we’re focused on not just what’s happening now, but also on what’s happening next.

Every episode is the truth beyond the headlines–and light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. It’s content for the 49% of Americans that proudly call themselves independent. And delivers the Righteous Media 5 Is: independence, integrity, information, inspiration and impact. Independent Americans is your trusted place for independent news, politics, inspiration and hope.
