With 36 governors races and nearly two dozen state legislatures up for grabs, 2018 could be a pivotal election year. Democrats hope a “blue wave” of anti-Trump voters will impact state elections across the country. But support for the president and for other Republican candidates remains high in many places. We’ll check in on the state primaries – the candidates, races and issues that will shape the elections in November. We’ll also look at some of the highlights of the primary season so far, including the surge of women running for office this year.

Join us for an informative webinar to get frontline insights on ballot results and trends and find out how they may impact your priority issues.
