THIS WEBINAR was filmed September 26, 2018.
Some of the issues discussed:

Her thoughts about Governor John Bel Edwards’s re-election campaign
Does she currently support a particular candidate for governor, assuming that person runs for the 2019 race?

Has she been on a different campaign team with a former ally and if so, how does the relationship generally develop?
Do conflicts occur in which two or more former clients might be now facing one another for a political office?
