A Conversation with Eric Cantor

  • September 15, 2013

Overview

You’re wondering whether the Republican Party is going to re-shape itself by the mid-term elections next year. So is Eric Cantor. The House Majority Leader is allied with the Tea Party and Paul Ryan, but has also acknowledged the importance of broadening the party’s appeal. So–would he take the party harder to the right or soften some of its edges? Forum Director Thane Rosenbaum will push past the political rhetoric as he questions Cantor about his future and the GOP’s.

This event is co-produced with the 92nd Street Y.
