As part of the Brookings Scholar Lecture Series, Brookings Mountain West invites you to a lecture titled "The Politics of Republican Governors" by Brookings Fellow in Governance Studies, Molly Reynolds. This lecture will focus on three key questions. First, what are policy areas where the political interests of states, especially Republican-led ones, may clash with the political interests of national Republicans? Second, where have we already observed these conflicts and what are the results? And third, what are the implications of 2018 state elections for the relationship between Republican-led states and national Republicans?
