Secret Contracts and Slow-Moving Coups with Luppe Luppen

Amanda’s Twitter fav, Luppe B. Luppen — also known as @nycsouthpaw — joins Battleground this week to contemplate the meaning of a bizarre agreement unearthed recently between Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin about reconciliation spending.

Luppen, a lawyer and political writer, laments the 2020 Iowa caucus debacle, and how the window for reforming their time-consuming and inaccessible primary process is quickly closing. Plus: it’s Striketober!
