With everything else going on, it’s easy to forget 2020 is still a presidential election year. To help us navigate the coming election, Josh welcomes Sarah Isgur to talk about national elections, money in politics, how much gender and race is a factor in elections, and how much influence campaigns really have in determining the outcome of an election.

Sarah Isgur is a writer and podcast host at The Dispatch where she specializes in legal and political matters.

Sarah graduated from Harvard University with a degree in law. She has extensive experience in political campaigns, including working in both John Corbyn and Ted Cruz’s campaigns for U.S. Senate and Mitt Romney’s presidential race in 2012. In 2013 and 2014 she served as Deputy Communications Director to the Republican National Committee. In 2016 Sarah was Deputy Campaign Manager in Carly Fiorina’s presidential campaign.
