With a new top-two system and newly drawn redistricting lines, the results of the upcoming June 5 primary are hard to predict. We'll talk with election experts, political players and journalists about the important races to watch. How is redistricting changing the political landscape? And how is what's happening in California impacting the national political stage?

Host: Scott Shafer
