In this 44-minute discussion you’ll hear Mike Lafferty and Craig Crawford asses such issues as why Obama won and Romney lost the presidential election…. the national media’s focus on campaign trivia or substance… the surprise outcomes of Central Florida races featuring Castor-Dental vs. Scott Plakon, Linda Stewart vs. Bob Brooks, and Chris Dorworth vs. Mike Clelland… the potential rise of new 2016 presidential contenders — Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio…the changing voter demographics in Orange County Florida, particularly the increase in those registered as NPA’s – No Party Affiliation… and identifying the big campaign donors in Central Florida.
You’ll also hear League members ask questions to Lafferty and Crawford about voter turnout, the potential change in the complexion of the Republican Party, the likelihood of an “open primary” election, and the format of the televised presidential debates.
This presentation was recorded before an audience of 200 league members and guests on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at the Sorosis Club in Orlando Florida as part of a Hot Topics Luncheon hosted by the League of Women Voters of Orange County Florida.
