Heitkamp on Rural America and Election 2020

Heidi Heitkamp , Former United States Senator, North Dakota; Board Director, One Country Project

The 2016 presidential election saw a significant shift in conventional partisanship and associated voting patterns in rural America. A particularly crucial question in the upcoming 2020 election will be the reengagement with disenfranchised rural voters and a reexamination of what matters most to rural Americans. How will political parties reestablish relevance and trust with rural communities? What wider significance will rural America present to the 2020 election results? Former United States Senator Heidi Heitkamp will lead a discussion on what is happening in rural America and what she is learning through conversations led by One Country Project.
