The U.S. Midterm Elections: What’s at Stake? A John Adams & Fulbright Event with Jonathan Capehart
Donderdag 18 oktober 2018, 20:00 uur
The John Adams and the Fulbright Center are bringing Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jonathan Capehart to Amsterdam. Capehart is a contributor to MSNBC, host of “America on the Line” on New York Public Radio (WNYC) and a member of The Washington Post editorial board, where he writes about politics and social issues. He will discuss the upcoming US mid-term elections on Tuesday Nov. 6th, which will shape the American political landscape for the next two years and beyond. The Republican Party is tipped to retain their majority in the Senate, but with dozens of Republican lawmakers retiring this year, the Democratic Party has a decent chance of taking over the House. And then? Will the Democrats block Trump’s nominees, pass new liberal state laws, kill the Republican legislative agenda in Congress? And what if the Democrats do poorly in the elections?
