May 13, 2020 - Max & Murphy Podcast: Rep. Yvette Clarke on Why She Deserves Another Term in Congress

yvette clarke wbaiRep. Yvette Clarke survived a close challenge in 2018, where in the Democratic primary the incumbent won by 2,000 votes against challenger Adem Bunkeddeko. As Clarke pursues another two-year term in the House of Representatives this year, Bunkeddeko is challenging her again, and several other candidates have jumped into the race as well. Clarke joined the show to discuss why she believes she deserves another term, how she responds to his critics, how the COVID-19 outbreak has changed things, what she learned from 2018, and more. The primary is set for June 23, with early voting June 13-21 and all voters eligible to vote by absentee ballot.
