Beyond the Horserace: Protest, Power and Election 2016
Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at 7:00 pm
The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011
This event is part of a series of talks at The New School hosted by The Nation magazine.
More than oneyear ago, concerned that ordinary citizens would be locked out of the presidential nominating process, The Nation argued that a vigorously contested primary would be good for the candidates, for the Democratic Party, and for democracy. Two months later, Senator Bernie Sanders formally launched a campaign that has already transformed the politics of the 2016 presidential race. Meanwhile, the GOP primary season featuring Donald Trump's political emergence and Ted Cruz's extreme nativism has been both volatile and unexpected. Join the conversation on the 2016 election with some of The Nation's keenest political minds. Audience questions will follow the moderated discussion.
