This week, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden participated in a raucous Presidential Debate, the first of the 2020 election cycle. Other campaign shakeups occurred this week, including a bombshell New York Times report on President Trump’s taxes and the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.  

For some perspective and analysis on the impact of this week’s events on the race for 2020, Ray Hershel spoke with Western New England University History Professor John Baick.
