Esty Dinur discusses the aftermath of the Recall election with Arun Gupta, editor of the Indypendent, and Eric Cobb, former executive director of Building Trades Council Of South Central Wisconsin.

Gupta wrote in his article in the Guardian, “The right threw resources into Scott Walker’s anti-union fight, while the Democratic party stood by. That’s a recipe for defeat.” Esty, Arun and Eric discuss the failures of the Democratic party in the Recall election.
