May 22, 2023

The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast gets ready for a big week in politics. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott officially kicked off his presidential campaign in North Charleston Monday morning. We also expect the long-teased Ron DeSantis presidential campaign to become a reality this week.

National politics reporter at the AP Meg Kinnard and Data Columnist at the Washington Post join the crew to weigh in. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
