What should Congress be doing to push back on China in the wake of the coronavirus? And what will the pandemic, widespread protests for racial equality, and growing political polarization mean for 2020 elections?

Sen. Cory Gardner joined the show to talk about the need for a bipartisan consensus on China, and explain why the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act provides the best framework for US policy in the region. He also discusses 2020 elections, recent protests, and Colorado politics.

Sen. Gardner was elected to the US House of Representatives in 2010. He was elected to the Senate in 2015, where he serves on the Foreign Relations Committee and the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. He also serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
