Bush, to discuss the approaching 2010 mid-term elections. With the Congress, numerous Governor’s offices, and state houses up for grabs, Rove will address the political landscape, providing expert insight into polling, candidates and the immediate and long-term implications of the November vote from the Republican Party perspective. Don’t miss this opportunity to get the inside scoop from one of the GOP’s key figures. David Eisner, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Constitution Center, leads the discussion.
