Make no mistake: Many elected officials were traumatized by the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6. Connecticut Congresswoman Jahana Hayes says she is still working out her own feelings. On All Things Considered, Hayes gave a thoughtful, personal response to the question of whether Jan. 6 will have a chilling effect on people wanting to run for public office. She also talked about her feelings on the stimulus, education secretary nominee Miguel Cardona and President Joe Biden’s inclusion of white supremacy as a primary problem the nation faces.
