The Fight Over The Supreme Court And Previewing The First Presidential Debate

Claire Anderson
The United States Supreme Court in Washington DC.

The rush to fill a vacant Supreme Court seat has quickly changed the political landscape. On this edition of River to River, how will it reshape the 2020 presidential race?

Host Ben Kieffer is joined by Iowa State University political scientists Karen Kedrowski and Jim McCormick. They share their thoughts on a potentially pivotal upcoming event: next week’s first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And they remember Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and discuss why her appeal crossed party lines.
