State Sen. Erica Smith says she's the progressive, credentialed, electable choice, even if the Democratic Party establishment isn't backing her campaign for the U.S. Senate.

On this edition of the WUNCPolitics Podcast, Smith talks about her fundraising and who she likes in the still-crowded presidential primary race. 

She also discusses what role race plays as she tries to become just the third black woman ever to earn a seat in the world's greatest deliberative body.
