With about one week to go until primary elections in PA, reproductive rights have surpassed other issues on the forefront of voters’ minds following a leaked Supreme Court draft decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. How are the candidates responding, and will this mobilize voters on both sides of the aisle? We’ll talk with Democratic political strategist DANIELLE GROSS and Republican state committee member JEZREE FRIEND.
