'Cotto/Gottfried': Why do conservative pols have the 'Red State Blues'? Matt Grossmann explains.

Over the last quarter century, the Republican Party has enjoyed far more wide-ranging victories at the state level than it has found on the federal stage. When all was said and done, though, conservative wins did not necessarily mean a serious shift in public policy. What happened in various statehouses and why is it important to reflect on this? University of Michigan political scientist Matt Grossmann's new book, 'Red State Blues: How the Conservative Revolution Stalled in the States,' seeks to offer definitive answers to these questions. Grossmann joins us on this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried' to discuss his research, which conclusions he drew from it, and much more.
