Sens. Heitkamp and McCaskill on Democratic mistakes

Clip: 12/13/2018 | 11m 8s

Although this year’s midterms sent several new women to Congress, two prominent female senators--Heidi Heitkamp and Claire McCaskill--are preparing to leave Washington after losing bruising reelection battles. Judy Woodruff sits down with both to discuss voters who feel forgotten, the mistake their party made by focusing too much on gender and how President Trump will help Democrats win again.
