Beyond the Horserace: Protest, Power and Election 2016


More than one year 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.
