May 13, 2020 - Max & Murphy Podcast: Adem Bunkeddeko Runs Again in Brooklyn's 9th Congressional District

adem bunkeddeko140wbaiAdem Bunkeddeko almost upset Rep. Yvette Clarke in the 2018 Democratic primary in Brooklyn's 9th Congressional District, coming within about 2,000 votes, and is trying again this year. He joined the show to discuss his campaign, what's changed since 2018, and why he believes Clarke is not performing well as the district's representative in the House of Representatives. The primary is set for June 23, with early voting beforehand from June 13-21.
