Bloomberg Government’s Kyle Trygstad and Greg Giroux turned the latest episode of Downballot Counts over to questions from listeners, including on Georgia’s primaries last week, the success of progressive candidates so far, and how the movement to “defund the police” could play out on the campaign trail.

They also discussed a powerful new TV ad Rep. Joe Kennedy is airing in his Democratic primary challenge to Sen. Ed Markey in Massachusetts that uses the protests to highlight the generational divide between them.
