Brazil Is “Looking for a Savior” in its Upcoming Elections

In less than a month, Brazilians will be heading to the polls to vote for a new president for the country.  The current political climate in Brazil is unsettling as new developments unfold almost every day. Last week, former Brazilian President and forerunner of the race despite being in prison, Lula de Silva, bowed out of the race. Early this month, Jair Bolsano, a candidate who draws similarities to President Trump, was stabbed at a campaign rally.  Joining us to help us  make sense of this chaotic election is Amanda Pinheiro de Oliveira, a Brazilian journalist andPhD student of Global Studies at the University of California-Santa Barbara.
