Recorded at NewDEAL's 12th Annual Leaders Conference last week in Washington, this week's special episode features Arizona Secretary of State-elect Adrian Fontes -- dubbed by TIME Magazine as one of the "defenders of democracy" during his successful midterm campaign against an ardent election denier. Speaking with host and NewDEAL Leader Ryan Coonerty, Adrian talks about why he decided to run for Secretary of State during a year when many were hesitant about Democrats’ chances of winning, how his election gained national attention, and lessons from his previous job as County Recorder in Maricopa County, where he helped make voting more accessible and transparent. Tune in for an important conversation on the state of our democracy, as well as to hear how campaigning for secretary of state meant doing comedy for Billy Crystal.
