It’s hard to run for Congress if you’re not rich, and that’s a problem

After penning a successful memoir about growing up in poverty, Sarah Smarsh caught the eye of national politicians. The author and Harper’s contributor joins host Krys Boyd to discuss how she was encouraged to run for the U.S. Senate in her home state, the financial barriers to that goal, and the avenues she feels could best give voice to the voiceless in Washington. Her Harper’s article is “In the Running.”
