June 24, 2020 - Max & Murphy Podcast: One Year to the 2021 Mayoral Primary

Political strategists Rebecca Katz of New Deal Strategies and Neal Kwatra of Metropolitan Strategies joined the show to discuss some of the initial results of 2020 primaries in New York and to look ahead to the 2021 mayoral primary, which is just one year away. Katz, fresh off helping to lead Jamaal Bowman to an upset win the New York's 16th Congressional District primary over Rep. Eliot Engel, broke down how the Bowman campaign did it, and Kwatra discussed broader themes including the role of organized labor in city politics. Then, the discussion moved to the field of candidates hoping to become the next Mayor of New York City.
