Coming up on Washington Week with The Atlantic:

A Presidential Rematch and The Disappearance of Moderates: 

Between Super Tuesday results and President Biden’s State of the Union address, the 2024 election continues to come into sharper focus, and with a Biden-Trump faceoff all but certain, this will be the first presidential rematch since the 1950s. 

This week, the former President secured an endorsement from the Senate’s top Republican, Mitch McConnell, who had previously denounced Trump after the January 6 insurrection. Additionally, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s (I-AZ) decision to not seek re-election signals the further decline of bipartisanship and likely increased polarization in the Senate. 

Joining editor in chief of The Atlantic and moderator, Jeffrey Goldberg to discuss this and more:

  • Eugene Daniels, White House Correspondent, Politico and Co-Author, “Playbook”
  • Asma Khalid, White House Correspondent, NPR and Political Contributor, ABC News
  • Carlos Lozada, Columnist, The New York Times and Author, “The Washington Book” 

Major funding for “Washington Week with The Atlantic” is provided by Consumer Cellular, the Yuen Foundation, Sandra and Carl DeLay-Magnuson, Rose Hirschel and Andy Shreeves, Robert and Susan Rosenbaum, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and PBS.
