In four short weeks voters will decide who will lead the state--- incumbent Republican Governor Larry Hogan or Democrat Ben Jealous.

We speak with WYPR reporter Rachel Baye and Bradley Herring, an associate professor of health policy at the Bloomberg School, about health issues in the election, including Jealous’ Medicare-for-All proposal and why health-insurance premiums have dropped in Maryland.
