Former Democratic National Committee Interim Chair Donna Brazile and former Republican
strategist and political contributor Ana Navarro will discuss today’s political landscape
virtually with the University of Wyoming community.
With years of political expertise and media experience under their belts, Brazile and Navarro are seasoned analysts and are among the best political commentators on television today. They can quickly scrutinize geopolitical trends and other major forces at play in the nation. When Brazile and Navarro team up, they deliver straightforward perspectives about the future of Washington, D.C., while peppering their talks with real-life stories from campaigns and television sets.
Brazile is a renowned political strategist and commentator; the former interim chair
of the Democratic National Committee from 2016-17; and a current Fox News contributor.
She also was an ABC News and CNN political news contributor.
She is the author of the New York Times bestseller “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House” and the 2004 bestselling memoir, “Cooking with Grease: Stirring the Pots in America.”
Brazile was the first African American woman to direct a major presidential campaign, acting as campaign manager for Al Gore in 2000.
Navarro is a well-known Republican strategist; political analyst for CNN, CNN en Español
and Telemundo; and is a co-host of ABC’s “The View.” The Miami New Times named her
a “Republican power-consultant,” and the Tampa Bay Times called her “a sought-after
voice in Republican politics and an adviser for any presidential hopeful.”
Navarro served as the national Hispanic co-chair for former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s 2012 campaign and was the national co-chair of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain’s Hispanic Advisory Council in 2008, where she also was the national surrogate for the McCain 2008 campaign. Navarro has played a role in several federal and state races in Florida.
She served on former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s transition team in 1998 and was his first director of immigration policy in Florida’s Executive Office of the Governor.
