Well, although President Trump is challenging the results (shocker), it looks like we have a winner.

This week, we talk about a state that finds itself in the national spotlight of Presidential politics for the first time since possibly 2008 (and that was only because the Republican nominee was from the state). Arizona is finding out what it's like to be a swing state.  Will it swing the other way, or do what it has consistently done since 1952?  We also talk about the absurd and virtually impossible threshold to open amusement parks in California, Republican Senators and their relationships and ties to Donald Trump, and the second and final Presidential debate.
