 Talk: Karl Rove on American Politics
The Republican political strategist Karl Rove will address the Los Angeles World Affairs Council on Thursday, May 12th about the US presidential race, the campaigns of the respective candidates, and how the Republican Party convention in July might play out. Rove, a life-long devotee of US political history, has just released a new book,The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters, and will talk about the lessons that can be learned from the highly contentious election of 1896, and situate the 2016 race in a larger historical context. He will also talk about the big issues facing Americans at home and abroad and what the most important decisions will be for the new President.
Rove served as Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush from 2000–2007 and Deputy Chief of Staff from 2004–2007. At the White House he oversaw the Offices of Strategic Initiatives, Political Affairs, Public Liaison, and Intergovernmental Affairs and was Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy, coordinating the White House policy-making process. Before Karl Rove became known as “The Architect” of President Bush’s 2000 and 2004 campaigns, he was president of Karl Rove + Company, an Austin-based public affairs firm that worked for Republican candidates, non-partisan causes, and non-profit groups. Today Rove writes a weekly op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, is a Fox News contributor and is the author of the newly released book, The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters, and the New York Times Bestseller, Courage and Consequence.
