The Issue Is: Jonathan Martin, Alexander Burns and Eric Early

"This Will Not Pass" is one of the best-selling and most talked about political books of the year. 

In their new book, New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns take readers behind the scenes of the tumultuous 2020 election, as well as the first year of the Biden presidency.  

This week, the authors joined Elex Michaelson on "The Issue Is" to talk about Trump, Biden, Newsom, and the possibility of a president Kamala Harris. 

Primary day is June 7th, and one of the most hotly contested statewide races is for California attorney general.

This week, republican candidate Eric Early joined us to discuss how he would handle rising crime differently than California's current AG Rob Bonta. 

"This Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson" is California's statewide political show. Watch more episodes at
