Many Americans projected a red wave would sweep across America this election cycle as Republicans campaigned hard on top issues like inflation and crime. However, election results have depicted a much different picture thus far – with Democrats projected to take the Senate and the GOP potentially winning only a slim majority in the House. Though, in deep-blue New York, a different story is being told about the Republican Party, as four Republican congressional candidates were able to flip their traditionally blue districts to red. Former fire chief and NYPD Detective Anthony D’Esposito was among those who won, flipping New York’s 4th Congressional district red in Nassau County. He joins to explain how garnering votes from Democrats and Independents played a role in his win, why he believes Lee Zeldin’s ‘tremendous race’ for governor helped Republican candidates across New York, and how he plans to use his experiences as a first responder when he arrives in Washington.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, then-Senator Joe Biden spearheaded an effort among Congress to send the beloved show, “Sesame Street”, to Russia. The move was part of a larger aid package designed to help with education reform and win over the hearts and minds of Russian youth. Natasha Lance Rogoff was hired as the executive producer of “Ulitsa Sezam” and was at the center of the show’s production. She joins the Rundown to discuss her book, Muppets in Moscow, and the inspiring and dangerous story of bringing the show to Russia.

Plus, commentary from James Carafano, Heritage Foundation’s Vice President for Foreign & Security policy.
