Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Larry Bensky was the National Affairs Correspondent for Pacifica radio from 1987 to 2007.
He anchored numerous live political events, including national party conventions. He is a long time teacher at California State University in Hayward, where he teaches courses like "The American Presidency."
Larry won a George Polk Award for his coverage of the Iran-Contra scandal in 1988.
With Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders earned about 27% of the New Hampshire primary vote in a still-crowded field of candidates on Tuesday, he declared decisive victory.
South Bend, Indiana Mayor Peter Buttigieg came very close in the New Hampshire primary however and will walk away with 9 delegates – the same number as Sanders.
Four years ago Sanders beat Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire with almost 60% of the vote. So why didn’t he do as well this time? The primary races have only just begun and much remains up in the air in a critically important election year.
