TYPE: Speaker Luncheon
We have two critical election cycles coming up. With all the theories, campaign promises, and tweets out there, it’s hard to know what we should be paying attention to as the unexpected unfolds this year and next. What are the lessons learned from the 2016 and 2018 elections, what demographic and political trends should we track, how will explosive issues (abortion, immigration, gun reform) play out in this election? How can the Democratic Party frame issues so they resonate with voters? When and how much should we listen to the polls?
Celinda Lake, one of the nation’s foremost political strategists, will answer our questions, and walk us through what she sees as the critical markers of the 2019 and 2020 elections. Ms. Lake has served as tactician and senior advisor to the national party committees, dozens of Democratic incumbents, and challengers at all levels of the electoral process. American Politics calls her a “super-strategist or, better yet, the Godmother,” and Working Woman says she is “arguably the most influential woman in her field.” Her firm, Lake Research Partners, is one of the most respected Democratic polling firms in the country.
