Strengthening the US Economy: A Bipartisan Approach

Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) is actively working with Republicans to foster innovation and competitiveness. He is eager to enjoin Capitol Hill in policies to grow manufacturing jobs, and to equip workers with the skills they need to fill them. The senator, just recognized by the Bipartisan Policy Center for his commitment to working across the aisle, has become a strong voice for job creation and the innovation economy. He also has been ranked among the top three most productive Senators of both parties. Please join us as he is interviewed by Ron Brownstein, Senior Editor of the Atlantic, in a far-reaching discussion of the American economy—and other touch points at the US Senate.
