The news cycle is inundated with content around the 2020 presidential campaigns, but little attention is paid to the staffers and advisors who shape policy behind the scenes.
National Journal's Network Science Initiative has conducted exhaustive research on the personal and professional networks of top Democratic presidential candidates to help Washington professionals understand the implications for policy and develop strategies for engaging each campaign.
In this webinar, we will dive into the vast network of people behind leading campaigns to explore how different communities inform strategy and ultimately influence policy. Specifically, we will discuss:
- How specific policies are informed by senior advisors and other key staff
- How campaign strategies can reflect larger policy priorities
- Key trends across campaigns and what these elucidate about leading candidates
