PeachPod Conversations: Jason Carter

Luke is back this week with the second edition of PeachPod Conversations. Luke sat down with former State Senator and 2014 Democratic candidate for Governor, Jason Carter. Luke and Jason discussed new energy for Democrats in House and Senate races in 2016. Jason also describes his way back into politics after taking some time off following the 2014 elections. And Jason describes the work of the Carter Center, including the coming eradication of Guinea worm and how it took a community effort to get the job done.

Afterwards, Luke and Kyle discuss Luke’s conversation with Jason. Kyle highlights some of the structural challenges that get in the way of the two parties in Georgia having distinct visions for the state.

Thank you to Jason for joining us for PeachPod Conversations.
