  • Buffet breakfast & networking

  • Keynote luncheon with political analyst Charlie Cook

Widely considered to be one of the nation’s most respected and impartial analyst of American politics, elections and political trends.  As the editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report, columnist for National Journal, political analyst for NBC News and co-author of the upcoming 2020 edition of the Almanac of American Politics, Mr. Cook’s prodigious writing is a direct line to the heart of politics.


Deemed “the Picasso of election analysis” by The Wall Street Journal, he produces the sharpest and most impartial political handicapping in the business, serving as the one-man, go-to-source for Americans who want to be “in the know” about politics.
