THE CABLE PODCAST: Hungary for All

 

Last year, Peter Marki-Zay won election as mayor of a medium-sized Hungarian city, defeating the candidate from Viktor Orban’s ruling Fidesz party after pulling off the feat of uniting all other opposition parties behind him. He went on to found the movement Hungary for All to replicate his success across the country. He and co-founder Zoltan Kesz join Greg to discuss their strategy. Greg and Susan also discuss last week’s European Parliament elections and a new congressional resolution on Hungary.
