Howard Dean, Ed Rollins to discuss 2014 midterm elections
Howard B. Dean III and Republican strategist Edward J. Rollins will examine the upcoming midterm elections with Sirius XM Radio host and former veteran White House correspondent Julie Mason during a panel discussion April 24 at Hofstra University in Hempstead.
The event is sponsored by the university's Peter S. Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency and will be held from 11:10 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. in the Student Center Theater on the North Campus.
Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
The panel discussion, "What's at Stake for Washington in 2014? An Early Look at the Midterm Elections," will be moderated by Meena Bose, a Hofstra political science professor and director of the Kalikow Center.
This will be the third Kalikow Center event of the semester featuring Dean and Rollins, who have been senior presidential fellows at Hofstra since 2009. Fellows teach classes, meet with students and participate in university events. They help expand the scholarly and archival record on the American presidency at the Kalikow Center.
Previous panels focused on President Barack Obama's foreign policy leadership and second-term challenges.
Dean, former governor of Vermont, was chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2005 to 2009. He ran for president in 2004.
Rollins is a veteran of four Republican presidential administrations and 10 presidential campaigns, including two tours as assistant to the president.
Mason is the host of the Press Pool on Sirius XM's POTUS channel 124. She previously covered the White House for Politico and before that was a reporter at the Houston Chronicle for 20 years.
