Welcome to Hacks on Tap!
The 2020 Presidential race promises to be one of the most consequential campaigns of the modern era, one that will be definitional for the future of the country and its two main political parties. To begin with, the Democratic primary encapsulates the struggle for the future of the party, as forces from the left seek to craft a more progressive platform while the old guard still holds many of the positions of power. The candidate that voters choose will have a major role to play in dictating how the Democrats adapt and change in this new political moment.
On the Republican side, President Trump seeks to ride a wave of economic growth to second term, but the shadow of impeachment still looms large, as does tension within the ranks of GOP stalwarts who have seen their party drastically shift on many issues.
Between now and Election Day is a nearly two year rollercoaster with endless twists, turns, and a whole lot of media noise. Hacks on Tap will bring you week-by-week analysis of the 2020 race from the perspective of two campaign junkies who have run more races between them than they can count (even some against each other).
