We’re all familiar with representatives in the House of Representatives. But did you know there also are delegates and a resident commissioner? So, who are these individuals, and how are they similar and different from representatives?

To find out, listen into my chat with Elliott Mamet. He is a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. Previously, he served as an American Political Science Association Congressional Fellow. Elliot holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Duke University. Also important to note is that Dr. Mamet spent time working in the office of Washington, D.C. delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton.
