Elections Preview from ABA

The 2020 national election cycle has already proven highly complex, and it’s important to go beyond conventional analysis to understand how things might play out. Jim Ellis of BIPAC and ABA’s Lee Sanders and Kelly Knowles joined ABA's Bake to the Future podcast to break down what we can expect this November and what the results might mean for the baking industry. They discuss everything from top issues, the Presidential race, key House and Senate races, and how the pandemic is affecting the campaigns and voting.
