It’s been a busy few years for Madeleine Dean, the Pennsylvania Democrat first elected to the House in 2018. The lawyer and professor was part of a historic wave of elected women who put the chamber back in Democratic control.
Dean has written a book with her son about his opioid addiction. She served as a manager at the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump. And she is now being mentioned as a possible Senate contender for the seat that retiring Republican Patrick J. Toomey is vacating in 2022.
For the latest Political Theater podcast, our own Jim Saksa talked to Dean and her son Harry Cunnane about their new book, “Under Our Roof.” And then we discuss with Saksa and senior politics writer Bridget Bowman where Dean fits into Pennsylvania politics.
