Senator Bernie Sanders has said that it’ll take an army to change Washington, and with the crowds he’s been drawing, he just might be building one. The independent Senator from Vermont has been drawing some of the biggest crowds of any candidate in both New Hampshire and Iowa, and according to Eleanor Clift who covers politics for The Daily Beast he’s also “bulking up” now in terms of his campaign staff and he’s doing pretty well fundraising, too. Eleanor joins me today to talk all about the reception that Sen. Sanders has been getting across the country and grassroots movement forming around him. You can also follow Eleanor on twitter.
Joining me today is the one and only Emmy-nominated actress Laverne Cox who can be seen in the Netflix original series Orange is The New Black where she plays the ground breaking role of Sophia Burset. The critically acclaimed show just returned to Netflix for its third season on June 12, and Laverne joins me to talk all about it. You can also follow Laverne on twitter.
