Introducing MNN and Free Speech TV's "America's Midterms — The Blue Wave"

From Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York to Beto O’Rourke in Texas, progressive candidates took the primaries by storm and are gearing up for a blue wave this November. Will they receive the votes they need to unseat Republicans and take back America?

MNN and FSTV’s latest production, America’s Midterms — The Blue Wave, is a political talk show hosted by Women's March co-organizers Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland, Democratic pollster Matt McDermott, and progressive Pennsylvania state House candidate Summer Lee. The show will offer commentary on national and local races, insights into progressive issues, and interviews with progressive candidates from across the country.

This Friday, October 12, tune in for the second episode, which includes interviews with two candidates running in red districts: Gabriel Acevero, Democratic candidate for Maryland's House of Delegates (MD-39), and Liuba Grechen Shirley, Democratic candidate for U.S. House of Representatives (NY-02). 

Later in the show, the hosts will discuss levels of voter engagement on both sides of the aisle, Trump's approval rating, how Kavanaugh's appointment is affecting the polling numbers, and the likelihood of Senate and House wins for Democrats. 

The second episode of America’s Midterms — The Blue Wave will premiere on Friday, October 12 at 8:00 pm ET on MNN-FSTV (Spectrum 1301 and FiOS 39 for Manhattan viewers or streaming live online worldwide at mnn.org) and on Free Speech TV (DISH 9415, DIRECTV 348, Sling TV, or streaming and on-demand on Roku, Apple TV and freespeech.org).

This limited series will continue to premiere every Friday evening at 8pm ET through November 9 on both MNN-FSTV and Free Speech TV.
