These two trailblazing strategists make up a power duo that will provide analysis on issues that affected the 2018 mid-term elections and are currently shaping the political landscape. Both with larger-than-life personalities, will take an in-depth look at the Trump administration, the current state of Congress, and the current hot button topics, as they share behind-the-scenes stories and insight gained from high-level government experience and on the campaign trail.
