Show Notes

Deval Patrick reacts to an eventful weekend in politics, including the foiled plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the confirmation hearings of SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett and the failure to pass an economic relief package. Then at 8:40, he interviews Adair Ford Boroughs, a South Carolina native running to unseat Republican Joe “You Lie!” Wilson in Congress, about her perspective on what it means to be American. Adair was raised in a double-wide trailer in a rural town, went on to graduate from Stanford Law and serve in both the Bush and Obama Administrations as a DOJ lawyer. Her experience has given her an unusual perspective on the American Dream, and how best to extend it to communities that don’t usually vote for Democrats.
