The future of the Democratic Party

Listen 00:49:30

Guests: Carmel Martin, Kaitlin Sweeney and Angela Couloumbis

With defeats on the Presidential ticket and in both houses of Congress, the Democrats are looking to the future. Will they embrace the faction of the party that was energized by Senator Bernie Sanders or stick with the more traditional Democratic politicians like Rep. Nancy Pelosi? We’ll discuss the future of the Democratic Party this hour with CARMEL MARTIN, the Executive Vice President for Policy at the Center for American Progress Action Fund who has advised Hillary Clinton on education and child care issues, and and KAITLIN SWEENEY, Press Secretary for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. But first, we’ll hear about the voting recount suit in Pa. filed by the Jill Stein campaign.  ANGELA COULOUMBIS, state government reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer joins us to give us the update on the effort.
