Conference Call: Peralta Talks Reunited Senate Dems

Last week was one of the more exciting weeks in recent New York state Senate history, with secret steakhouse meetings culminating in a public handshake that reunited the breakaway Independent Democratic Conference with the mainline democrats.

State Sen. Jose Peralta has been a member of the IDC since the beginning of 2017. He joins us today to talk about what reunification means for the state and why it is happening now. We also asked him if his 14-month foray in the Senate majority was worth it, even though the DREAM act, which he sponsors, has failed to pass.
