33 minutes of pure politics. Former Mass. state official and political operative Beth Lindstrom is one of three Republicans seeking the GOP’s blessing to challenge Democratic incumbent Elizabeth Warren for a seat in the U.S. Senate. State Senator Geoff Diehl and businessman John Kingston are her competitors. This episode of the Scrum opens with a consideration of Republican front-runner Diehl (00:00 – 05:12); moves on to an extended interview with Lindstrom, including a discussion of President Donald Trump and the Helsinki summit with Russian President Putin (05:13-28:32); and closes with speculation on how a race against Warren might play out (28:33-32:34).
