Some world class political discussion should be expected at the National Ethanol Conference (NEC), Feb. 15-17, 2016, in New Orleans. Political experts Mike Murphy and Paul Begala will get together for a point-counterpoint luncheon discussion on the 2016 election.
Mike Murphy – Political Strategist, Political Analyst for NBC News and Contributing Editor, TIME
Murphy is one of the Republican Party’s most successful political media consultants, having handled strategy and advertising for more than 26 successful gubernatorial and Senatorial campaigns. Murphy has been called a “media master” by FORTUNE magazine, the GOP’s “hottest media consultant” by Newsweek and the leader of a “new breed” of campaign consultants by Congressional Quarterly.
Paul Begala – Political Analyst and Commentator for CNN
Begala has consulted for political campaigns across the country and around the world and is part of the political team at CNN that has won both an “Emmy” and a “Peabody Award”. In the 2012 campaign he was a senior adviser for the pro-Obama Super PAC, making Begala one of the few people to play a critical role in electing two different presidents. After helping engineer Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, Begala served as counselor to the President, one of Clinton’s closest aides.
