McKay Coppins on Mitt Romney

Running toward crises

Steve and Sarah sit down at Dispatch HQ with McKay Coppins, a staff writer at The Atlantic and author of the forthcoming Romney: A Reckoning, a biography of Mitt Romney’s political career. Coppin’s unique access to the soon-to-be-retired senator turns a traditional political biography into a near-psychological thriller covering Romney’s torment after losing the 2012 presidential election, the psychic currency of a senate seat, and his vote to convict Donald Trump.
