Session: The Republican Reckoning

3 p.m. Thursday, May 6

The Trump Presidency upended the Republican party so completely that they didn’t even present a platform at their convention. It was officially just the party unto a man. And then he lost. So where does this leave the Republicans now? A quiet civil war is underway to resolve this issue. We’ll check in with Henry Olsen and Ross Douthat, two conservative columnists with inside-the-beltway access, who explain the many ways this could go. This conversation will be moderated by Northwest Newsmakers host, Monica Guzman.
