The South vs. the Establishment: Jaime Harrison discusses South Carolina senate race Reckon Interview

    • Politics

There’s more to this discussion than partisan politics of course but in poll after poll… we’re starting to see some of the country's most inelastic states look a little more like swing states. And we’re starting to see a few cracks in the establishment on the right and the left. Jaime Harrison, the Democratic candidate in a statistical tie with Sen. Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, joins the Reckon Interview to discuss why the Democratic establishment should embrace the South. Dana Hall McCain, a conservative columnist in Alabama, joins the second half of the show to discuss how to stay true to your values, even when it seems like your party’s establishment has cast them aside.
