Congressman Jared Huffman

Representing the 2nd District of California

Reaching across the aisle...

May 8, 2017

Hi friend,

As I’ve been travelling up and down the North Coast, hosting town halls and other public meetings, one of the most common questions I hear is: “how can we get things done in today’s partisan gridlock?”

It’s not an easy question to answer, but we have to try. That’s why I decided to sit down and talk with my congressional colleague Mark Sanford (R-South Carolina) for the most recent episode of my podcast “Off the Cuff w. Rep. Huffman.” You may think from press reports that a Democrat from California and a Republican from South Carolina wouldn’t have much common ground — but as you’ll see in our talk that’s simply not the case.

Our conversation ranged from climate change to how to make bipartisan progress more broadly, and of course as representatives of two beautiful coastal regions we had to talk about our congressional districts.

You can listen to our conversation here:

Hope you enjoy listening to this podcast episode, and as always, please don’t be a stranger! Subscribe to the podcast on iTunessoundcloud, or stitcher, and contact me via TwitterFacebookemail, or call one of my district offices, and we will continue to help to the best of our ability.
