Capitol Conversations Episode

Show Notes

Ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, the ERLC policy team invites former Republican strategist Brent Leatherwood to the roundtable. Brent offers an insider’s look into the campaign trail, political polling, and the races to watch on election night. The group also offers encouragement to Christians on how to approach conversations about politics with their neighbors in a culture rife with division. We took some time off the air these past few weeks as our team was in transition, and now we’re glad to be back with you!
