Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
After blocking 450 users from his public Facebook page, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and his staff have been criticized for limiting free speech. In response, the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland demanded a review of the hundreds of people who were barred from posting on the governor’s page. The group also requested an apology to each user for “publicly maligning them” and a restoration of their posting privileges. Kojo discusses the role of social media in political participation and both sides of the governor’s social media engagement.
