New proposed legislation threatens some of the power D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser exercises over education in the District. Rep. Jamie Raskin is running for a second term in Congress, pledging to protect Maryland's air and federal workers. They both join us in studio.
The lines of Maryland’s sixth Congressional District were redrawn in 2011 in a way that benefited Democrats. A group of Republican voters are challenging that redistricting, saying it violated their first amendment rights. Last week, the Supreme Court announced it would hear the case, making it the second partisan gerrymandering case they will hear this session. We discuss the politics of gerrymandering, the reasons both Democrats and Republicans do it, redistricting reform efforts in Maryland and Virginia, and what the court ruling could mean for the country.
