Overview (Program Summary)
The 2022 midterm elections have proven to be nothing short of historic as Republicans took the House by a historically thin margin and Democrats maintained control of the Senate. As the country grapples with a looming recession, record inflation, sharply higher interest rates, hot and cold foreign wars and the Dobbs Supreme Court ruling, Democrats managed to escape the precedent of losing a large number of seats in a president’s first midterm. So, how will the next two years shape up?
Please join distinguished members of Akin Gump’s policy practice—each with significant U.S. government experience and with differing perspectives from both sides of the aisle—to discuss the razor-thin margins in Congress and potential consequences for the legislative agenda (such as fiscal cliffs, government shutdowns, the privacy debate and trade) as well as their thoughts on a 2024 presidential primary race already underway and how all of this will impact getting any deals done. A cocktail and networking reception will follow on the club’s outdoor patio.
Complimentary valet parking will be provided.
