AmCham Belgium
Decision 2020: The US Presidential Race after Super Tuesday


"Join us for a talk with Democrats Abroad and Republicans Overseas!"


What can we expect from the election campaign in the run up to the November vote? Where do the candidates stand on the issues that matter to voters?

In the aftermath of Super Tuesday, when many key states hold their primaries and caucuses, we will hear from Democrats Abroad and Republicans Overseas – bring your own questions!

For US citizens in Belgium, this is an opportunity to participate in the debate and share views and concerns about their home country.

For both US and non-US citizens from all backgrounds and ages, this is a unique opportunity to actively express their ideas and get concrete answers to their questions on an election that will impact the whole world. Moreover, both the Democrats Abroad and the Republicans Overseas will provide the opportunity to register to vote to any US citizen attending the event.
