AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATION RELEASES 2020 POST-ELECTION ANALYSIS - 11/11/20
2020 has been a historic year— and this November, many Americans are looking to those in Congress and those in the White House to lead the country, protect the courts and make progress on issues like climate change, health care, racial justice, and a post-COVID economy.
The 2020 election determines who those leaders are, and not just in Congress or in the White House. With 435 House seats, 35 Senate seats, and 13 gubernatorial seats up for grabs, more is at stake than ever.
