On this week's episode of Tying It Together with Tim Boyum, we take a look at the South’s role in the 2020 elections.
The death of George Floyd, and demands for social justice have brought issues of racism and history back to the forefront with the South playing a starring role. We talk with three experts on southern politics and history about how we define the South, get an explanation of the old Southern strategy, and what strategy we will see this fall.
Dr. Michael Bitzer from Catawba College, Dr. Susan Roberts from Davidson College, and Dr. Chris Cooper from Western Carolina University will give us their insight on the past and how the South could play a huge role in the 2020 election.
