It’s a triple state of play kind of day! Henry brings us along on a tour of key southern states. Rudy Bush of Texas breaks down Ted Cruz’s fight with Colin Allred and Lone Star State’s demographic changes. Then we move to pressing matters further East, where off year elections are underway. Al Cross takes us through the must-watch governor’s race between Andy Beshear and Daniel Cameron in the Commonwealth of Kentucky; and J. Miles Coleman joins to pick apart campaigns in the political bellwether that is the Virginia General Assembly.

Plus Henry’s Washington Post colleague Dan Balz assesses the fight between Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis to be Donald Trump’s final Republican challenger. And “Ad of the Week” returns with an introductory bio ad for prosecutor Bill Graham who hopes to be North Carolina’s next governor.
