The Game – Show – 223 – Guest: Mary Hughes

Recorded: September 11, 2015
Guest: Mary Hughes, founder, Close the Gap CA

Hillary Clinton wants to be the first woman to be elected president. But at the same time, the number of women in elective office continues to decline. The topic is women, campaigns and elections. The Game is politics, the Game is on.

Mary Hughes is president of Hughes And Company, a leading political consulting firm, and founder of Close the Gap CA, a campaign to increase the number of progressive women in the California Legislature. Three years ago, she founded the 2012 project for the Center for American Women and Politics, with a similar nationwide goal, following a 2010 election cycle in which the number of women in state legislatures dropped by more than 60.
