Midterms 2020

Midterm elections always matter — but in this divided era, as the country begins a redistricting cycle amid a wave of new laws that will make it harder for Americans to vote, the 2022 midterms will matter more than most. From the role of primary voters to the issues that will bring voters to the polls a year from now, hear early insight from some of the best in the business: Stephanie Cutter, political consultant and Founding Partner of Precision, and a veteran of both Obama campaigns and the Obama White House; Shailagh Murray, a former Washington Post political reporter who went on to serve as and as deputy chief of staff to Vice President Biden and President Obama’s senior advisor; Alex Castellanos, founder of Purple Strategies, and served as a strategist for the Ryan-Romney and Bush-Cheney campaigns; and moderated by Bakari Sellers, CNN political analyst and former U.S. representative, South Carolina (D).
