Description

Over the last decade, Wisconsin has become an extreme experiment in single-party rule. Republican officials have redrawn the state’s election districts and rewritten laws to ensure their domination of the state’s legislature.

Guest: Reid J. Epstein, a reporter covering elections and campaigns for The New York Times.
