The Beltway Briefing Road To The 2018 Midterm Elections – Special New York Politics Edition

August 15, 2018

On this special edition of the Beltway Briefing Road to the 2018 Midterm Elections call, Howard Schweitzer, CPS’s Managing Partner, interviews Katie Schwab, Rose Christ and Ken Fisher of our New York City office about the current political climate in New York, the recent activism we’ve been seeing by the City Council and Mayor’s Office – particularly as it relates to the “disruptors” like Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb – and the team’s thoughts on the closely-watched Governor and State Attorneys General races in New York. Tune in to hear how President Trump and the current 24/7 cable news cycle is motivating progressive activists on the ground in the city, the impact of term limits on the lack of a real challenger to Mayor de Blasio, and the ways the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez upset are shaping politics in New York. The Beltway Briefing Road to the 2018 Midterm Elections is an ongoing series hosted by Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies providing timely insights into what’s happening in key battleground states and a sense of how a shifting House and Senate map will impact policymaking in Washington.
