How Much Do Political Endorsements Matter?

This election cycle, there’s a lot of conversation about political endorsements: Who has them, who doesn’t, and what do they really mean anyway?

Jenn White finds out more about how endorsements work and how much impact they really have.

Guests: Tony Arnold, political reporter, WBEZ; Brian Gaines, Political Science Professor in the Institute of Government and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois
