2020 NAAG Presidential Series - The Elephant and Donkey in the Room: Maintaining Professional and Collegial Relationships in A Partisan World
Many commentators suggest that partisanship in and among the ranks of attorneys general has risen, particularly during the administrations of President Obama and President Trump. Some commentators also believe that the partisan activism of attorneys general threatens the bipartisan relationships that have proven so successful through the efforts of NAAG. Others believe that the system of checks and balances that arise from partisan attorney general activism has been helpful to advance such things as consumer protection, state’s rights, the rule of law, and federalism. This panel will explore the impact of the sharply polarized political environment, political organizations that participate in attorney general elections, and other political developments on the actual decision making by attorneys general and in the relationships between Republican and Democrat attorneys general.
