The 2020 elections are upon us. While the Presidential election is front and center in the news media, Congressional election outcomes also significantly impact the ever-fluctuating agenda in Washington. What might we expect in terms of party majorities and their agendas in the House and Senate? Will Democrats hold the House? Will Republicans hold the Senate?

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify which seats are up for election and the potential outcomes
  • Assess the implications of the election on business, tax, trade, and other issues of importance to business
  • Evaluate the potential impact of these issues with respect to advocacy efforts on behalf of the profession
