In a typical election year, Congress would break by October 1st, as members hit the campaign trail.  But 2020 has proved again and again to be anything but typical.  On the latest episode of Hometown California, RCRC's Paul A. Smith sits down with two of the most respected advocates on Capitol Hill, Sheryl Cohen of the American Continental Group (ACG) and Kevin Eastman of PACE LLP., for a discussion about the closing weeks of the 116th Congress.  Recorded in Washington D.C. on the day President Trump's coronavirus diagnosis was announced, Kevin and Sheryl share their insights about the successes and failures of the 116th, the vacancy on the Supreme Court due to the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, what to expect in a Lame Duck Congress and the 117th Congress.
