The program, which will take place virtually, will be moderated by Governor Chris Christie and will focus on the importance of legislating in the United States Congress in a bipartisan fashion. Both Senators Collins and Manchin have earned national reputations as strong advocates and effective legislators who work across party lines.

“As our country tries to find real solutions to the challenges we face, there are not two more important U.S. Senators to that task than Joe Manchin and Susan Collins,” Christie said. “The Christie Institute is honored to host them both at this crucial time in our nation’s history.”
