High profile panel breaks down 2012

leave a comment »

Richmond was the spot for a high-profile discussion on the 2012 election and Virginia’s important role in picking presidents.

Dr. Larry Sabato, the director of UVA’s Center for Politics invited a number of journalists and former government officials to the State Capitol to discuss the 2012 race.

The panel of journalists included Christina Bellantoni, the politics editor of PBS’s NewsHour. (pictured) Jonathon Martin reporter for POLITICO, former Rep. Tom Davis, Lauren Whittington, the politics editor for Roll Call and Jill Lawrence, managing editor for politics at the National Journal.

The panel touched on a number of key issues in the race and beyond. I got a my own “mini-panel” discussion after the event. Bellantoni joined me for a live chat on NBC12’s First at 4.

Sabato also took some time to talk to me afterward. We discussed how the average Virginian may not be prepared for just how much attention the Commonwealth is about to get.
