From theory to practice
Adam speaks with Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin, who has experienced money in politics both as a leading scholar of constitutional law and as a state legislator. They discuss how he put his theories into practice once he became a candidate and a legislator, how he was able to win a recent congressional primary despite being outspent, and how today's 'wealth primaries' act a lot like the 'white primaries' from the past. Plus, we ask him what he would change if he had a magic wand.
