Mail bombs spark national partisan-driven blame game; Tulsi Gabbard considers a 2020 presidential run; Republicans support a far-left Senate candidate over Dianne Feinstein; and history is being made under nonpartisan election reform.

Check out an independent perspective on the mail bomb story here.

IVN Editor Shawn Griffiths and IVN Author Wes Messamore break down the week in news from an independent perspective. They point out the hypocrisy on all sides, and go beyond the partisan headlines to give you the information that matters.

In this episode:

(00:56) Mail bombs sent to prominent political and media figures spark partisan-driven blame game.

(26:45) Close adviser to Tulsi Gabbard says she is considering a 2020 run. Good idea? Could she win?

(39.02) Dianne Feinstein's further left Senate opponent is winning one group in the 2018 race -- Republicans. Revenge for Kavanaugh?

(45:14) The two-party system has forced out an independent governor, but nonpartisan reform is making history for independent candidates and voters in states like California and Maine.
