As the weeks have gone by over the summer, Barr has launched a re-election campaign and has kept up with the nation’s simmering issues, from COVID-19, to unrest in many cities over racial issues, to the ongoing deep economic challenges. He talks with Bill Bryant about his wife’s legacy, his thoughts on how the country will economically recover, the upcoming election and more.
