LAC 2020 Speaker Sabato


Keynote Speaker: Dr. Larry Sabato  

What does it take to know the results of an election before it happens? How can you predict the winners with 99% accuracy—of every congressional, senatorial, and gubernatorial race in the country, while also predicting the Electoral College count with the smallest possible margin of error? Only one man in the country knows the answers to those questions, and that man is Dr. Larry J. Sabato. Called “the most quoted college professor in the land” by the Wall Street Journal, he is the founder and head of the University of Virginia’s (UVA) Center for Politics, where his ‘Crystal Ball’ electoral analysis expertly navigates the shifting sands of American electoral politics, accurately predicting the landslides, the nail-biters, and everything in between.

Sabato is the author of 24 books and countless essays on politics, including the well-known Feeding Frenzy, A More Perfect Constitution; and The Year of Obama. At LAC, he will be available to sign his latest book, The Blue Wave: The 2018 Midterms and What They Mean For The 2020 Elections.

Professor. Pundit. Political Seer. Sabato provides expert knowledge of what is coming down the pike, preparing us for the changing of the guard in Washington, D.C. and the nation. He bridges the gap between the rhetoric and the reality, showing audiences how the art of politics and the science of the American voting psyche come together to produce our nation’s next batch of leaders.
