We continue our midterm coverage today with some election reflections from Matt Rothschild of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Over the course of the hour, he responds to listener questions and reflects on the rise of Trump, the fall of Scott Walker, the urban–rural divide, bipartisanship, and the fate of our democracy.
