Political Party with Keli Goff: Follow the Money

Thursday, October 27, 2016

7:00 PM

 

 

Join us for the next installment in our monthly conversation series hosted by writer and journalist Keli Goff.

From the billions spent by Charles and David Koch to the small bills spent by Bernie Sanders' supporters, whose money controls American politics? Does influence and power lie in the pockets of a few big donors or millions of small donors? Keli Goff and a panel of experts examine who's giving, who's getting, and what's at stake for the 2016 elections.‎

About the Series

This election season, sidestep the horserace and join us for our only-in-New York cocktail party and conversation series for the politically curious. This is not another partisan shoutfest or predictable pundit roundtable. These are conversations that will be clever, passionate and political, yet civil. Thoughtful contrarianism is encouraged. Talking points are not.
