Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Election Event

Panel members included U.S. Consul General in Leipzig, Mark Scheland, senior member of the Bundestag, Social Democrat Uwe Küster, and Crister Garrett. Mark Scheland noted that the elections on 8 November ranged through the whole scope of American society, from deciding on who should be the local sheriff in many communities across the country, to which party would have majority power in the national legislative branch or Congress. Uwe Küster underscored that the broad sweep of the Democrats illustrated the continuing vitality of American politics and democracy. And Crister Garrett mentioned that the name on everyone’s minds, at least during this event, namely Hilary Clinton, had done very well in her successful re-election campaign for the U.S. Senate among rural and independent voters, key sectors of the electorate for anyone seeking to become the next President of the United States.
