Peter Franchot: I will build ‘bridges’ over ‘the adversarial canyons that separate us right now’

Maryland Comptroller and Vietnam veteran Peter Franchot joins Chris Jansing to discuss his candidacy in the Maryland gubernatorial race and tout his bipartisan appeal as voters head to the polls to make their primary picks.
