Native American and Native Alaskan women make up 1 percent of the U.S. population, yet there has never been a Native woman in Congress. It looks like that’s about to change. Host Jenny Kaplan chats with the woman who’s favored to make history on Tuesday: Deb Haaland, a Democrat from NM-01. Deb talks about how her experiences as a single mom and a Native American have shaped her political perspective. Experts share thoughts on the challenges of candidates of color, the effectiveness of a strong ground game, and the potential impact of voter suppression.
