State party chairs to open political luncheon series Friday


Scott Brennan, chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, and Leon Mosley, co-chair of the Iowa Republican Party, will open the new Drake-IowaPolitics.com Luncheon Series. The event will start at 11:30 a.m. Friday, March 9, on Drake’s campus in Levitt Hall, Old Main.

Moderated by IowaPolitics.com Des Moines Bureau Chief Chris Dorsey, the kickoff luncheon will offer a bipartisan projection of the presidential campaign and the impact of the Iowa caucuses in January 2008.

The Drake-IowaPolitics.com Luncheon Series provides a forum where major candidates, elected officials, major party leaders, campaign organizers, pollsters, pundits and other newsmakers can communicate directly with interested citizens as well as Drake students, faculty and staff. The series, launched less than a year before the crucial Iowa caucuses, will help focus attention on major issues and Iowa’s role in the presidential selection process — both before and after the caucuses.

The luncheons will continue on a monthly basis and will typically feature one guest.

The cost to attend is $20, and each reservation includes lunch. Doors open at 11:15 a.m. and the program will run from noon to 1 p.m. Due to limited seating, pre-paid reservations are required.
