Progressive activist Marcy Winograd is running for a second time against entrenched Blue Dog Jane Harman in the 36th congressional district. Winograd promises to bring jobs to Los Angeles with a New Green Deal. Shell fight to end war in Afghanistan, repeal unfair trade agreements that outsource jobs and defend Social Security and Medicare. A recent poll commissioned by her campaign shows her opponent’s support slipping to 43 percent. Could this be the opening that challenger Marcy Winograd’s grassroots campaign is looking for? Is she too progressive to win in a general election?

Guest:

Marcy Winograd, co-founder of the Los Angeles chapter of Progressive Democrats of America and candidate to unseat incumbent Rep. Jane Harman in the 36th Congressional District
