LIVE AT 11 a.m.: Is fleeing a valid tactic for lawmakers? Rob Port and Jay Thomas discuss
State lawmakers in Texas have fled their state in an attempt to block laws backed by the Republican majorities in their legislative chambers (and a number of them ended up getting COVID-19, ironically enough).
Now, at the national level, Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has urged his colleagues to do something similar to block a massive Democratic spending bill in Washington D.C.

Jay Thomas, host of the Jay Thomas Show on WDAY AM970 in Fargo, joins this episode of Plain Talk Live to discuss.
