Former professional football player, businessman and candidate for U.S. Senate in Georgia Herschel Walker joins the Rundown to discuss the impact of Hurricane Ian and his concern for the people of Florida and Georgia.

For almost two weeks, protesters in Iran have taken to the streets to decry their government’s severe crackdown on women’s restrictive dress requirements. The nationwide movement was sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died after being in police custody for not properly wearing her hijab. The United States has voiced support for the protests, yet these come just as the Biden administration holds negotiations with Iran in an attempt to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal. Congresswoman Young Kim (R-CA) joins the Rundown to discuss the Iranian protests and how U.S. negotiations with Iran could only further empower the regime in Tehran.
