Christian traveled with Booker as he campaigned in South Carolina, and got a chance to sit down with him to discuss his campaign.
This is a great opportunity for the ESSENCE audience to get a closer feel for candidates and the way the connect with constituents, Callahan noted. To see candidates speak candidly, even while the cameras are rolling, will give viewers a chance to see what theyre truly made of.
