Jonathan Allen

Jonathan Allen’s newest book, co-authored with Amy Parnes, takes a deep dive into Joe Biden’s narrow victory that put him in the White House. It’s a story in part about how progressives Democrats, faced with the possibility of another four years of Trump, were able to coalesce behind a centrist candidate.

Fred Wertheimer

As Congress prepares for a showdown over a massive voting rights bill, democracy advocate Fred Wertheimer says passing the For the People Act is  essential to make sure America does not return to the days of Jim Crow politics.

Jamie Raskin
