About this event
Midterm elections are typically a referendum on a president’s midpoint in office. However, in an increasingly polarized United States, this year’s midterms are just as much a referendum on the previous president and whether Trumpism will survive Trump within the Republican party. In this heated political environment, government innovation and efficiency have stagnated with fewer and fewer transformative projects taking place. In his new book, American Reboot: An Idealist's Guide to Getting Big Things Done, former Congressman Will Hurd takes on the issues of polarization and government stagnation that have plagued the nation. In a one-on-one discussion with Hurd, we will get his take on the upcoming midterms as well as his guide for the future of American progress in this month’s edition of #TransatlanticTuesdays.
