Illinois primary elections are March 17th, one week from tomorrow, and early voting is happening NOW!
In this episode, our host Dave Byrnes sat down with Anthony Clark, a democratic socialist candidate running for the U.S. House of representatives in Illinois’ 7th Congressional District. Anthony talks about his recent Sun-Times endorsement, his view of the potential power of electoral work in a broader socialist agenda, and how to use the language of shared struggle to push for change.
