Washington Insiders to Discuss Partisan Divide pre-Midterms
Two Hamilton alumni — both highly regarded Washington insiders — will offer their perspectives on bridging the country’s current deep political divide facing the United States and the upcoming midterm elections, among other topics, during a live Q&A on Hamilton’s campus next Saturday, Oct. 27, at 10:30 a.m.
Mike Dubke ’92, P’19, former White House communications director in the Trump administration and co-founder of the Black Rock Group, and Marc Elias ’90, a partner with Perkins Coie who served as general counsel for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and for other Democratic candidates, will discuss questions posed by veteran journalist Jackie Judd P’14 in Wellin Hall. The event is part of Fallcoming Weekend and is free and open to all, but tickets are required. Those who aren’t able to attend may watch via Facebook Live on the College’s Facebook page.
This event will be a replay of a similar discussion the trio conducted in December 2017. It is part of the Common Ground program that has included discussions between other major political figures holding opposing views including former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and White House advisors David Axelrod and Karl Rove.
