Capitol Weekly Podcast: Paul Mitchell on redistricting, COVID-19

Political data expert Paul Mitchell joins John and Tim — remotely, of course — on the Capitol Weekly Podcast to talk about the mechanics of a vote-by-mail election in November, how COVID-19 is impacting the prospects for redistricting, the census and what he learned by turning 50 while on quarantine.

Paul, who phoned in from his daughter’s packed closet, chatted about the challenges facing political strategists as they put together campaigns that eschew the old-fashioned “boiler room” phone banks in favor of email, the internet and scattered volunteers working out of their homes as they shelter in place.
