Podcast: The ‘nuclear’ option, Trump’s free publicity, bipartisanship, accountable candidates in Maryland

April 6, 2017 | Francoise Stovall

Laura and Crystal give you a brief update on where the Gorsuch nomination stands and what a ‘nuclear option’ is. Then they discuss why Trump visiting his properties so often (and giving them all that free press) is a problem. Did you know bipartisanship exists and is working at the state level? Laura and Crystal run through a heartening list of bipartisan initiatives at the state level that tackle money in politics. And finally, a successful public financing system for candidates in Montgomery County, Maryland, is letting new candidates run without being beholden to special interests.
