With less than 50 days left before the U.S. presidential election, the country is struggling with a pandemic, shrinking economy and a divided elecorate. To hear different perspectives on the election and generally discuss the state of current affairs in the U.S., AmCham Latvia in partnership with our fellow AmChams in the Baltics, is excited to announce a series of virtual discussions in the month of October. 
 
We invite you for an exclusive virtual session to discuss the upcoming U.S. election with White House Correspondent for Fox News Radio Jon Decker.

Jon Decker has been a member of the White House Press Corps since 1995, covering the Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump administrations. He is the only lawyer in the press pool and was among the few political journalists to correctly predict the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
 
Join us as one of Washington’s most experienced political journalists provides an exclusive insider’s look from the Hill. Which states will be key battlegrounds? Will the escalating unemployment rate impact Trump’s chances of re-election?
