State and Federal Communications is proud to be the sponsor of Keynote Speaker Jennifer Duffy at the WASRG 2012 Summit today in Washington D.C.!
According to the WASRG site:
Join us on Thursday, October 11th as we gather from 12 – 2 p.m. for the 2012 WASRG Summit. Your Board of Directors has reimagined and streamlined this event for 2012 to include a lunch and keynote followed by the presentation of the WASRG Award of Excellence.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of State & Federal Communications, we are pleased to have Jennifer Duffy, Senior Editor for The Cook Political Report, headlining our event. Jennifer is responsible for U.S. Senate and Governors’ races at The Cook Political Report. Founded in 1984, The Cook Political Report provides analyses of Presidential, U.S. Senate, House and gubernatorial races. Jennifer has 26 years of experience in campaign politics, the last 23 of which have focused on non-partisan political analysis. In 1985, she served as Press Secretary for the National Republican Senatorial Committee; she joined The Cook Political Report in 1988 as its first Assistant Editor. While continuing to work as the Report’s contributing editor, Jennifer also was a senior account executive with Hill and Knowlton Public Affairs Worldwide and an associate with the lobbying firm of Cassidy & Associates.
In 1995, Jennifer rejoined Cook & Company full-time. She has served as an off-air analyst for NBC News on Election Nights from 1996 through 2010. Jennifer has been quoted in numerous publications and has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS’ “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer,” and C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.” In June of 2011, BusinessInsider.com named her one of the 13 savviest political analysts in the country.
A native of Rhode Island, Jennifer received a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Government from Georgetown University in 1985.
WASRG is excited to bring this new format and new venue to the annual Summit. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to enjoy your friends and colleagues over a family-style lunch.
