NEW Free Forum – JOHN NICHOLS – How Do We Win Back the Rust Belt in 2018 & 2020?

Written on September 8th, 2017

JOHN NICHOLS, is National Affairs Correspondent for The Nation and Associate Editor of The Capital Times in Madison, so his beat includes the nation’s capital as well Wisconsin’s. His latest book, HORSEMEN OF THE TRUMPOCALYPSE: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America, reports on over 40 players on Team Trump. My biggest question for Nichols: What needs to happen so that Wisconsin and the rest of the Rust Belt dumps Trump in 2018 and 2020?
