Your Speaker: Trinity Calgaard Professor Juan Sepúlveda, J.D.
In the midst of unprecedented times—the coronavirus pandemic, our economic challenges, and the social unrest sparked by the killing of George Floyd—join Political Science Professor Juan Sepúlveda for a conversation on Campaign 2020. What is the current status of key races taking place nationally, in Texas, and in San Antonio? Is the presidential race a referendum on President Trump or a choice between Trump and Biden? What’s happening in the six key battleground states of AZ, FL, MI, NC, PA, and WI? Is Texas turning blue? Or is it still red? Purple? Will Democrats maintain control of the U.S. House and Republicans the U.S. Senate? Will the TX GOP hold onto the Texas House? How will Trinity alumnus class of 1999 San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg fare with three sales tax initiatives on the ballot—Pre-K 4 SA, workforce development, and VIA? For this and more, please join us for a lively examination of American politics in 2020. Sepúlveda served as Texas State Director for the Obama for America campaign in 2008 and Senior Advisor for Hispanic Affairs at the DNC for the 2012 re-election campaign of President Obama.
