It’s November, and that means US elections are just one year away. But how will energy policy, climate change and prices at the pump play into this election cycle?
Capitol Crude spoke with a Democratic and a Republican strategist for their take. We’re going to present their views over two episodes. First up this week, you’ll hear from Antjuan Seawright for the Democratic perspective, and Tom Hassenboehler will be on the podcast next week to weigh in on the GOP’s thinking.
Now, Seawright is a CBS News political contributor and Democratic strategist as well as founder and CEO of Blueprint Strategy, a political consulting firm based in South Carolina. He joins the podcast to talk about environmental justice, bringing balance to the energy transition and whether recent turmoil in the House could have more voters turning blue.
