Two key events in this extraordinary presidential race are fast approaching—the Iowa caucuses on February 1 and the New Hampshire primary on February 9. In the midst of these pivotal political proceedings, Roll Call journalist Mort Kondracke will speak at the 2016 NACDS Regional Chain Conference on February 8 in a presentation that confidently posits: who will win the election—and why.
Kondracke knows what he’s talking about. A television and print journalist, he has covered national politics and domestic and foreign policy for decades.
Kondracke knows what he’s talking about. A television and print journalist, he has covered national politics and domestic and foreign policy for decades. Before joining Roll Call, Kondracke was executive editor of The New Republic, Washington bureau chief of Newsweek and a columnist for The Wall Street Journal. On television, he was an original panelist on the pugnacious weekly public affairs show The McLaughlin Group, a panelist on the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” with Brit Hume and Bret Baier, and co-host of Fox’s “The Beltway Boys.”
In a review of Kondracke’s most recent book, Jack Kemp: The Bleeding-Heart Conservative who Changed America, The Atlantic wrote, “Kondracke and Barnes have provided an indispensable resource to understand the conservative ascendancy of the 1980s and 1990s.”
Kondracke’s indisputable Washington, D.C., political expertise is sure to make for a compelling and insightful analysis of this unpredictable—and fascinating—presidential campaign.
