Mary Kay Thatcher, Senior Manager of Federal Government and Industry Relations for Syngenta, provided her perspective on the “churn of the election” during the company’s media summit this week. She does expect the presidential outcome to drag on for a while, but during her presentation, Thatcher used the assumption of a Biden presidency for her outlook.
In the biofuels space, Thatcher said the industry may need to look toward more Democrat champions, since a President Biden might not be as receptive to Republicans like Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley in Iowa.
Here is the full presentation, which refers to slides and includes media questions at the end.
