The Red/Blue Battle for 2020: Two Partisans Weigh In

Thursday, April 2
9:00 am - 9:45 am, Conference Room (Ballroom A)

Speakers: Chris Christie, Paul Begala

Moderators: Mike DuHaime

With Democrats veering left and Republicans veering right in a climate of hyper partisanship and populism, the influence of politics on business decision-making is likely to increase after the November elections. 

In this session, two of the nation’s best-connected political insiders — Republican former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Democratic strategist and CNN political contributor Paul Begala — will engage in lively and forthright debate about what’s ahead. Specifically, they will discuss:

  • The issues that will decide who captures the White House and Capitol Hill.
  • How the impeachment drama has colored the race to November 3rd.
  • Who the Democrats will choose as their candidate after a contentious primary battle.
  • The outlook for taxes, regulation and international trade. 
  • How industrial company owners and operators should best position their companies considering the likely political outcomes.
