Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics hosts event on April 2

The Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics welcomes Republican strategist Karl Rove on April 2.

The Rebovich Institute for New Jersey Politics will present An Evening with Karl Rove on Monday, April 2, in the Bart Luedeke Center, on Rider’s Lawrenceville campus. The 7 p.m. speech will be followed by a Q&A session.

Karl Rove served as senior advisor to President George W. Bush from 2000 to 2007 and Deputy Chief of Staff from 2004 to 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.

Rove has been described by respected author and columnist Michael Barone in U.S. News & World Report as “ … unique … no presidential appointee has ever had such a strong influence on politics and policy, and none is likely to do so again anytime soon.” Washington Post columnist David Broder has called Rove a master political strategist whose “game has always been long term … and he plays it with an intensity and attention to detail that few can match.” Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard, has called Rove “the greatest political mind of his generation and probably of any generation ….  He knows history, understands the moods of the public, and is a visionary on matters of public policy.”

The event is free and open to the public, but seats are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. If all seats are taken, there will be an overflow room where guests can watch the presentation. To RSVP, contact Susan Cuccia at 609-896-5350 or via e-mail at [email protected].
