Join us for what is sure to be an insightful introductory talk. The first of 3 upcoming talks, this will be an informal, open discussion on the upcoming US Presidential elections. The night will include a discussion of the Republican primaries to date and a review of the possible strategies leading into the general election this year for both the Democrats and the Republicans. Expert analysis will also be provided live from Washington, giving their perspectives on the campaigns to date.
