In Georgia, two women were locked in a close race for the Democratic nomination for governor. What does this primary tell us about the future of the Democratic Party?

On today’s episode:

‚Äʬ†Jonathan Martin, a national political correspondent for The New York Times.

Background reading:

‚ÄĘ Stacey Abrams, a former minority leader of the Georgia House,¬†made history by becoming the first black woman to be a major party nominee for governor¬†in the United States, defeating Stacey Evans in Georgia‚Äôs Democratic primary.

‚ÄĘ The race between Ms. Abrams and Ms. Evans, two well-regarded candidates with starkly different campaign strategies,¬†was viewed as a weather vane for the Democratic Party‚Äôs prospects in the midterm elections. Ms. Abrams banked on the support of young people, women, and African-American and Hispanic voters, while Ms. Evans reached out to moderate and conservative-leaning white voters.

‚ÄĘ Here are the results for Tuesday‚Äôs primaries in¬†Arkansas,¬†Georgia,¬†Kentucky¬†and¬†Texas.

‚Äʬ†Record numbers of women¬†are running in the midterm elections, but¬†the road to Capitol Hill is a hard one.
