1. As Abortion Vote Looms, Ohio GOP Hopes To Rein In Ballot Measures NPR 23:55

Trump’s latest charges may further fracture House Republicans — with some in the party motivated to undermine President Biden with investigations and others worried about holding on to split-ticket seats that Biden carried in 2020.

This episode: political correspondent Ashley Lopez, domestic extremism correspondent Odette Yousef, congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, senior political editor and correspondent Ron Elving, and Statehouse News reporter Karen Kasler.
