Book bans have become an increasingly popular trend in schools across America. Ban requests are on the rise due to parent advocacy groups calling for stricter standards, while some educators are decrying the crackdown on certain literature as harmful censorship. First, Moms For Liberty Co-Founder Tina Descovich joins the Rundown to discuss why she believes some books must be banned to protect children from inappropriate content for their age group and her belief parents must reclaim their rights in their children’s education. Later, Director of The American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom Deborah Caldwell-Stone joins the podcast to weigh in on the increased demands to censor books, why she believes it could hurt marginalized students, and how schools and parents can find solutions to their disagreements.
 
The latest FOX News Power Rankings are projecting a Republican House majority, as well as a 51-49 majority in the Senate. In order to accomplish this, the RNC is keeping its focus on topics such as high inflation and crime. Meanwhile, GOP candidates must appeal to both "MAGA" and moderate Republicans. Former Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) joins the Rundown to discuss his take on how the party can ensure gaining power after the 2022 midterms. He also gives his take on how candidates should approach issues on voters' minds this November.
