Matthew Dowd, chief campaign strategist for Bush-Cheney 2004, will review that race and preview 2008 in a speech next month at Kansas University's Dole Institute of Politics.
The event, co-sponsored by the KU College Republicans, is free and open to the public. It will be held at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1.
Before the 2004 presidential campaign, Dowd was senior adviser to the Republican National Committee and director of polling and media planning for the 2000 Bush for President campaign. In 2000, he managed all public-opinion efforts and spearheaded the strategic targeting and execution of the campaign's almost $150 million advertising budget.
A contributing analyst for the Fox News Channel, Dowd currently teaches a course titled "Campaigns and the Media" at the University of Texas at Austin and has led similar seminars at Stanford, Harvard and Yale universities among others.
