Election Connection: The Texas 'Jungle Primary'

The views and opinions expressed in Election Connection are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of WFUV.


It’s not always easy to keep up with what’s going on in politics or to cut through the jargon to fully understand your voting rights. Enter, Jerry Goldfeder! He’s a veteran election lawyer at the Stroock law firm in Manhattan and an Adjunct Professor at Fordham Law School, where he was twice voted Adjunct Professor of the Year.

In each episode of Election Connection, Jerry raises a current election question or issue in a way that’s both entertaining and informative -- on a national or local subject you want to know about! 

In this episode:  A special election was just held in Texas to fill a vacancy in a congressional seat. No one received 50%, so the top two vote getters are in a runoff. But they are both Republicans! How did this happen?
