former US Attorney on stage with America’s best-known political consultant
One stage! One night!
Thursday, April 3, 2014
Meridian Ballroom, Morris University Center
This blockbuster event pairs James Carville and Alberto Gonzales together for a one-time debate. The first part of the program will center on immigration, while the second half will address some of the hot issues of our times. James “The Ragin’ Cajun” Carville is America’s best-known political consultant. His long list of electoral successes evidences a knack for steering overlooked campaigns to unexpected landslide victories and for remaking political underdogs into upset winners. His most prominent victory was in 1992 when he helped William Jefferson Clinton win the presidency. Appointed the 80th Attorney General of the United States, Alberto Gonzales became the first Hispanic to lead the nation’s largest law enforcement office. Former White House Counsel to President George W. Bush, Gonzales played a vital role in the administration’s fight in the war on terror and addressing the changing role of the Department of Justice post 9/11.
