'We're Better Than This': Elijah Cummings' Posthumous Political Memoir

werebetterthanthis_hc_c.jpg

Tom’s guest is Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings.  She’s a political consultant and the widow of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, who served in Congress for two and a half decades, and who called Maya his soul mate, in his words, “for 11 years of marriage and an eternity of connection.”   

In the final year of his life, before he passed away last October, Elijah Cummings worked on a memoir with the writer James Dale. It’s called We’re Better Than This: My Fight for the Future of Our Democracy.
