Election 2020: What’s Next?
A Conversation with NPR’s Michel Martin & Domenico Montanaro
Presented by New England Public Media and the Springfield Public Forum
This much we know — Joe Biden is President-elect and Kamala Harris makes history as the first woman and the first person of color to be Vice President-elect. But questions abound.
Who will win the remaining undecided seats in the Senate? How did the COVID-19 pandemic affect voter turn-out? Did first-time voters make a difference? How will the transition play out?
New England Public Media and the Springfield Public Forum present an open conversation on the future of our country and where we are headed in the wake of the election. Join NPR senior political correspondent Domenico Montanaro and Weekend "All Things Considered" host Michel Martin for “Election 2020: What’s Next?” NEPM’s Kari Njiiri is the moderator.
