James Carville, Mary Matalin to Co-Host the Bipartisan Policy Center's Post-Election Political Summit at Tulane University

Leading Political Insiders from Both Parties will convene on November 15 to Analyze a Transitioning Government

Washington, D.C. - The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) will host its Fourth Annual Political Summit, Beyond the Ballot: A Government in Transition, at Tulane University in New Orleans on Thursday, November 15, 2012. Co-Hosted by popular bipartisan political duo James Carville and Mary Matalin, the much anticipated summit will feature more than two dozen current and former elected officials, national political strategists from both sides of the aisle, and prominent journalists.

Panel discussions throughout the day-long event will explore the current political landscape and examine where the two parties may find common ground going forward to address the nation's key policy issues.

"The Summit has become an important hub for honest and constructive dialogue focused on how to achieve and implement politically-viable solutions to address the problems facing the nation. We are delighted that BPC continues to support New Orleans and the greater community by bringing their annual conference to this great city each year, and we look forward to engaging in immediate post-election analysis," said Matalin and Carville.

To request an interview with the panelists and RSVP, please email press@bipartisanpolicy.org.
