A journalist’s perspective on the presidential election will be the focus of the next Policy and a Pint, on Wednesday, November 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Brocach, 7 West Main Street in Madison.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Washington, D.C., bureau chief and national political reporter Craig Gilbert will discuss Wisconsin’s role in the presidential election at the La Follette School’s monthly after-work speaker and networking series. Gilbert is the school’s fall writer in residence.
Named one of Politico’s “50 politicos to watch,” Craig writes about political trends and elections in Wisconsin for the Journal Sentinel and the Wisconsin Voter blog. He completed a Knight-Wallace Fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he studied statistics, mapping and research analysis, which has driven his reporting on Wisconsin politics.
Policy and a Pint brings together alumni, friends of the school, students, staff and faculty to hear about current policy issues and share informal discussion. “We have had great turnouts this fall,” says organizer Kate Battiato, the La Follette School’s career development coordinator. “We expect lively debate with this session just a week and a day after the election.”
