Scoop talk show: Does partisan politics have a place in local elections?

Happy Friday San Marcos.!

Welcome to a new episode of the San Marcos Scoop. This week, we are joined by Mark Diehl and Chris Rue, hosts of KZSM’s weekly political talk show, The Mixed Bag, to discuss the growing hostile political climate which has now steeped into the local elections.

Does partisan politics have a place in local elections? And how has social media played a role in divisive language towards people of the same community?

Additionally, we discussed record voter turnout at Texas State University, and the cry from Democrats to extend early voting on campus.
