Webinar: Party Politics in our Nation’s Capitol: Insiders’ Perspective
Join two Washington insiders— DCI Group Managing Partner Brian McCabe, and Bethany Bassett, senior vice president for Rasky Partners— for their perspectives on politics in the nation’s capitol. How will President Biden “bring the country together” amid the political divisions within our country and his own party? Can Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi keep their democratic caucuses composed as the progressive wing pushes its agenda on mainstream House and Senate democrats? Will Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy keep cohesion in their respective chambers as supporters of former President Trump keep his torch aloft while others seek to realign the party without his influence? Our two panelists will answer these questions and more. Bethany Bassett’s Rasky Partners is a leading lobbying firm in DC with deep roots among democratic office holders, including President Biden. Brian McCabe’s DCI Group is a leading lobbying firm with equally deep roots among republicans. The webinar will be hosted by Neil Levesque, executive director, New Hampshire Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College, and BIA President Jim Roche.
