With less than a week to go before election day in Maryland, Kojo sits down with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alec Ross.
Electors around the country are meeting today to select a new president.

Kojo chats with Raskin about why he supported a state proposal that would require Maryland’s electors to support the winner of the national popular vote, and what’s at stake in conversations about the future of the Electoral College system.
- Jamin Raskin Member-Elect, U.S. House of Representatives (D-Maryland, 8th District); and Professor of Law, American University's Washington College of Law
