Chamber in the News

Politico’s Chief Political Correspondent to Give Elections UpdateS

September 3, 2020

Dial in on September 14th at 10:00 a.m. to hear about the latest polls, insider scuttlebutt and expert predictions from POLITICO’s chief political correspondent, Tim Alberta and Michigan political veteran, John Sellek of Harbor Strategic Public Affairs.

The 2020 election is shaping up to be one of the most interesting in recent history.  Democrats have President Trump on the defensive and are pushing hard to gain control of the U.S. Senate.  Mr. Trump has been an underdog before however, and not afraid of a tough fight while John James has his target set on flipping a seat in the U.S. Senate out from underneath Gary Peters.  Here in Michigan, Democrats are working hard to achieve a legislative majority in the State House and for the first time in almost a decade, they have a strong ally in the Governor’s office to help them, Gretchen Whitmer.

The Michigan Chamber is pleased to provide you an opportunity to hear from national political expert, Tim Alberta from POLITICO on how he sees the 2020 federal election unfolding.  Additionally, John Sellek from Harbor Strategic Public Affairs will share his insights into the battle for the State House.  Could Trump retake the White House?  Could State House Democrats gain majority and give Governor Whitmer a huge ally in the legislature?  Could Michigan see another 55/55 split majority like we did in 1993!?
