John Burton has served in California government for over three decades: in the State Assembly, State Senate and in the US House of Representatives. He now chairs the California Democratic Party, and in their conversation, Burton tells Robert Scheer why he believes California democrats became and stayed more progressive than the rest of the country. He talks about the difficulty over the past several decades of campaign finance reform actually taking hold. And he discusses the current election and why he thinks Trump supporters and Bernie Sanders actually have a great deal in common.
