Editors note: This week's program was recorded before network projects of the Joe Biden win, and just before the Jasper County county error revealed Democrat Rita Hart had overtaken Dr. Marianette Miller-Meeks by 163 votes in the race for 2nd District Congress.

In the Second District, Republican, Dr. Marianette Miller-Meeks, declared victory late Tuesday night, when she led by 282 votes with what appeared to be 100% of the vote in.
