Author Event with Karl Rove


December 15, 2015

Providing new insight into the election of William McKinley in 1896, Karl Rove’s The Triumph of William McKinley: Why the Election of 1896 Still Matters draws parallels between Washington’s political climate then and today.  McKinley overcame similar challenges facing the leaders of our nation today: a shifting economy driven by new technologies, a growing immigrant population and other divisive issues causing gridlock and frustration in Washington. As President, McKinley was able to overcome these challenges and set a precedent for action in his party for years to come.
