Central Coast Voices: A New Congress, or Divided Dysfunction?

Broadcast date: 1/10/2019

The 2018 midterm elections resulted in a new Democratic Party majority in the House of Representatives, while Republicans maintain control of the Senate and the Presidency. It was a historic election across many fronts, with the largest number of women ever elected to Congress, and reform movements across the country changing the way that we elect our leaders. Inside Congress, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have a number of opportunities to cooperate on policies with bipartisan support, but will they? What happens to President Trump’s agenda?  And what does it all mean for residents on the Central Coast?

Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with Associate Professors of Political Science and Public Policy at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Chris Den Hartog, Ph.D., and Michael Latner, Ph.D., as they discuss the consequences of the Midterm elections, a New Congress and President Trump’s next two years and its importance to the Central Coast.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.
