Jessica is still thawing out from her below-freezing morning at a Supreme Court rally when she and Laura sit down to talk about the many groups that don’t want to see Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and why. Then there’s TWO good news stories this week! The first is in New Mexico, where bipartisan majorities have passed an update to the state’s public financing system. The second is in Seattle, where democracy vouchers are lowering the barriers for homeless people to participate in local politics.
