As in 2016, voters in rural America are poised to have a significant impact on who will be the next president. Yet, many rural counties are still struggling with COVID-19, high unemployment and the environmental impact from natural disasters and wildfires. How will all of these competing and often complex factors affect choices when rural residents vote?
Those are some of the topics Agri-Pulse plans to explore during a webinar discussion Tuesday with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) on “The Intersection of Rural America & Manufacturing: A Preview of Election Issues.” Agri-Pulse Managing Editor Spencer Chase will serve as moderator for the webinar featuring Rep. Xochitl Torres Small, D-N.M, Rep. Dusty Johnson, R-S.D. and AEM’s Kip Eideberg on Sept. 29 from 11 a.m. to noon CDT.
The webinar is part of Agri-Pulse’s in-depth Campaign 2020 coverage, which is sponsored by AEM.
