Rotarian Orme Lewis introduced Robert Robb, editorial columnist for The Arizona Republic to Rotary Club of Scottsdale members and guests.
Mr. Robb spoke at a club meeting held in a capacity-filled Scottsdale McCormick Superstition Ballroom, according to a press release.
Attendees reflected on Mr. Robb’s comments about upcoming voter turnout projections, voter polling unpredictability, Arizona’s budget, and more. During a question-and-answer, attendees took the opportunity to ask Mr. Robb his opinions about United States Electoral College, Maricopa County ballots and the future of our country’s two-party system after this November’s presidential election.
Mr. Robb was named Wall Street Journal’s “Dean of Political Journalists.”
Mr. Robb has been a columnist with the newspaper since 1999 and appears frequently on local television and radio and has been a guest on PBS’s The NewsHour, MSNBC, BBC Worldwide, CNN’s American Morning, C-Span and several shows for Fox News. He has been published in the Wall Street Journal and RealClearPolitics.com.
At the same meeting, Rotarians, David Pastor and Charlie Kester presented the Club’s 2017 calendar fundraising project. Ads for calendar quickly sold out, the release stated.
The calendars are now ready for sale and the eventual daily winner drawings in 2017.
