Party Or Person? How Voters — And Candidates — View Political Allegiances In 2020
Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders is a leading contender for the presidential nomination, especially after his first-place New Hampshire finish. But it's a primary for a party Sanders is only nominally a part of. What does he owe Democrats if he isn't the eventual nominee? We're talking about how voters — and candidates — think about allegiance to parties or people heading into the 2020 election.
Our guests are:
- Dean Lacy, professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College and director of the Politics and Law program, researching politics, elections and public opinion
- Republican Sen. Joe Benning, on how he thinks about this as a candidate and a voter
- Democratic Sen. Ginny Lyons, discusses her identity as a Democrat in Vermont
