On November 6, the citizens of the United States of America elect all of the 435 seats of the House of Representatives and one third of the Senate’s seats. Will the Democratic Party succeed in regaining one of the chambers from the Republicans? What is the current state of Congress, especially with bipartisanship in crisis? Which are the most important legislative projects both for Republicans and Democrats over the next two years until the presidential election in 2020? We look forward to discussing these questions with Charles Kupchan. He is Professor of International Affairs in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. From 2014 to 2017, he served as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for European Affairs on the National Security Council in the Obama White House.
