Bernie Sanders showed that big money isn’t needed to run a presidential campaign, changing the national calculus. But can the same be done in Texas? Will 2018 be the year small dollars make the difference at the local level? A candid conversation with Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, who is running against Ted Cruz for Senate; Ben Jealous, candidate for governor of Maryland; and Nina Turner, president of Our Revolution. Moderated by Ryan Grim, The Intercept’s D.C. bureau chief.
