2018 Midterm Election Results: What It Could Mean for Chemistry

Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 2pm ET 

A hand putting a ballot in a voting box.

Not as much attention is typically given to a midterm election, but a lot will be decided on November 6. Join Ben Pershing, Editor of the National Journal and Anthony Pitagno, Director of Government Affairs and Strategic Alliances for the American Chemical Society in this free interactive broadcast as they examine the midterm election results from a science perspective.

Discover a preliminary analysis of the midterm election results, ranging from the Congressional Chemistry Caucus; which party won the majority for the House and Senate; and scientists running for office. Lastly, the webinar will discuss possible legislative priorities for the new Congress.
