Did (((Dark Money))) Sink Jamaal Bowman? Not Really, No.

Analyzing the most expensive primary race in U.S. history.

Why was Squad member Jamaal Bowman defeated? Was it AIPAC or … Bowman’s poor performance as a congressman? Sarah and Jonah discuss.

The Agenda:
—Bowman’s problematic relationship with his constituents
Remember the fire-alarm incident?
—Is AIPAC running a bad playbook with funding efforts?
—What’s next for Bowman?

Sarah Isgur is a senior editor at The Dispatch and is based in northern Virginia. Prior to joining the company in 2019, she had worked in every branch of the federal government and on three presidential campaigns. When Sarah is not hosting podcasts or writing newsletters, she’s probably sending uplifting stories about spiders to Jonah, who only pretends to love all animals.

Jonah Goldberg is editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Dispatch, based in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, enormous lizards roamed the Earth. More immediately prior to that, Jonah spent two decades at National Review, where he was a senior editor, among other things. He is also a bestselling author, longtime columnist for the Los Angeles Times, commentator for CNN, and a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. When he is not writing the G-File or hosting The Remnant podcast, he finds real joy in family time, attending to his dogs and cat, and blaming Steve Hayes for various things.
