Hello <<First Name>>,

This week, learn why former president Bill Clinton believes prison reform will end up being the biggest issue in the 2016 elections, as well as how private prisons are finding ways to keep their best interests on the minds of candidates across the nation.

See why Georgia's governor wants to take his state's prison reform to the public education system, and why a well-known conservative is supporting California's Prop 47.

Our video of the week details a lawsuit underway in Kentucky, where a candidate for Clerk with a decades-old felony conviction is fighting for the right to run for office.
