There are heightened concerns about the security of state election systems with a little more than two months to go before Election Day.

The FBI has found evidence that foreign hackers were behind breaches in Arizona and Illinois earlier this summer, where online voter registration systems were targeted. And it's thought that Russia might be involved.

Longtime investigative journalist Michael Isikoff first reported the story, and joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss what he's found out.
