Six Feet Apart with Alex Wagner - May 7, 2020 - 31:22

As federal authorities have moved farther away from the frontlines of this virus, state and local leaders are left to manage the spread of Covid-19. How are they balancing the safety of their citizens with the economic realities of a widespread shutdown? How are they dealing with the Trump White House? And how are they getting any sleep? First, Alex speaks with Governor Steve Bullock of Montana about the delicate balance of being a Democratic governor of a deep red state (and an upcoming candidate in the US Senate race). Then she speaks with Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago, who is literally taking to the streets to keep people safe in the third largest city in America.
