2020 is going to be the year of politics – let Stephen Farnsworth be the expert you call first when you’re covering it.
Like the final act in a great Shakespearean play – 2020 looks to be a year of tragedy, irony, comedy and intrigue. We can expect betrayal, vengeance, protagonists, antagonists, heroes and villains.
With impeachment hearings, the DNC primaries, summer conventions, trade deals and the election that promises to be an epic display of speeches and stumping as well as vicious and vitriolic attacks.
Dr. Stephen Farnsworth is a sought-after political commentator on subjects ranging from presidential politics to the local Virginia congressional races. He has been widely featured in national media, including The Washington Post, Reuters, The Chicago Tribune and MSNBC.
