Politics News Roundup - May 10, 2024


We'll start off this week's politics roundtable with a look at national news.

Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene got booed on the House floor after finally attempting, and failing, to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson. We'll also look at the current status of a new farm bill.

After, we'll focus on Illinois politics.

Last week, Governor JB Pritzker signed a law that keeps local political parties from appointing legislative candidates to show up on the ballot where the party didn't field a candidate in the primary, which solidifies majorities for Democrats before votes have even been cast. We'll hear about the ramifications of this law.
