2020 is looking to be a pivotal year in politics. But this year's elections are about much more than the race for the White House. And the coronavirus pandemic is proving to be a complicating factor. WKSU, our colleagues at public radio stations across Ohio and the region and at NPR will bring you coverage of all the races from the national to the local level.

Carol Dunitz holds a sign promoting her musical ahead of the debate in Westerville.

When political candidates come to town, they attract a lot of attention. People who sell shirts and other items set up shop to sell their wares. A professor from Washington D.C. stopped in Westerville Tuesday, carrying a sign to advertise her product – a musical about the 2020 election.

Carol Dunitz is walking around in a shiny Uncle Sam costume, carrying a sign to advertise her musical. Dunitz, who has a doctorate in speech and theatre, says her musical is about the 2020 election and includes songs that address a variety of issues.

“There’s one on criminal justice reform, there’s one on reproductive rights, there’s one on a woman president, there’s one on global warming. You name it – any issue. You know they say Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that. Well, I’ve got a song for that.”

Dunitz says she likes to express herself through making music. She’s set up a website about her musical and says she intends to perform it throughout the country in the months leading up to the election next year.
