Pritzker Fellow Doug Ducey on "How Governors Govern: The Future of the Republican Party Isn’t in Washington, D.C."


(Current UChicago Students Only)


Tuesday, February 27

10:00-11:15 AM 


What should the Republican Party stand for? What should conservatism represent? Our nation’s capital cannot provide that answer. Indeed the federal government did not create the states, the states created the federal government, as Republican governors understand, and yet many in Washington don’t. Governor Ducey sees the path to electoral and policy success for Republicans resting on a push for dollars and decisions back to the states, rather than a top-down, Washington, D.C.-centric approach. There are numerous examples to point to of Republican governors leading the way for the GOP, foreshadowed when President Reagan reminded us in his first inaugural, “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem.”


Hot chocolate & pastries will be provided!
