“In 2022, all elections are subject to this threat, and places with large Latino voting blocs like Florida and Texas will continue to be good places to monitor for Spanish-language disinfo,” Curi said.

Later in the episode, Greg and Kyle highlight the primaries they’re watching in May, starting with contests in Ohio and Indiana on Tuesday.
