    Beto O’Rourke on Fixing Our Democracy First

    Just in time for the first Democratic debates, Larry Lessig talks with Beto O’Rourke about the candidate’s plans to fix our democracy. O’Rourke explains his plans to expand voting rights and get 15 million more people to vote and to reduce the influence of special interests. He also expresses support for learning more about ranked-choice voting (RCV). Importantly, O’Rourke also reveals that democracy reform will be the first thing he does in office.
