Battle for the House: Midterms 2018

Old North 205, 7:00pm - 8:00pm


The Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy will host DCCC Executive Director Dan Sena and NRCC Executive Director John Rogers for a discussion entitled, Battle for the House: Midterms 2018. The event will take place on Wednesday, October 17th at 7:00 PM in Old North 205 on Georgetown’s main campus. The event is co-sponsored by the Georgetown University College Democrats and the Georgetown University College Republicans.

In a conversation moderated by Nathan Gonzalez, Editor & Publisher of Inside Elections, Dan and John will discuss the set-up of the House of Representatives heading into the midterm elections. Will the President’s rhetoric and policies cost his party a historic number of seats? Will a booming economy bode well for Republicans? Are socialists taking over the Democratic left wing? How will the midterms help shape the remaining two years of the President’s first term?
