Mayor Muriel Bowser’s oversight of the Office of the State Superintendent of Education is being challenged by new proposed legislation in the Council. She joins us to discuss that plus a push to legalize sports gambling, the effort to overturn Initiative 77, and more. And Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., is running for re-election. He joins us in studio to discuss his campaign and his legislative priorities as his first term in Congress comes to a close.
