Tune in to WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday at 6 pm to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews John Katko
Last November Republican John Katko enjoyed a landslide victory in New York’s 24th congressional district, winning the seat from the incumbent by 20 points. He wore a purple tie and pledged to reach across party divides, and moderate his party’s sharp edges. A year in, how has that process gone? This week on the Campbell Conversations, host Grant Reeher is joined by the first-term representative in a wide-ranging discussion that includes the effort to be a moderate in Congress, the funding of Planned Parenthood and the potential shut-down of the federal government, the problem of poverty in Syracuse, Katko’s campaign support from the Republican Party’s Patriot Program, Carly Fiorina’s rising star, and The Donald.
Miss the live broadcast? The interview will be available as a podcast and download on the Campbell Conversations page after Sunday.
Every week Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a conversation with a notable guest. Guests include people from central New York – writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals whose work affects the public life of the community – as well as nationally-prominent figures visiting the region to talk about their work.
The Campbell Conversations are longer interviews which encourage the character of the interviewee to be exposed. This allows you to learn more about the person, how they got to where they are, and where they plan to go. Grant attempts to go beyond the usual press conference questions and sound bites, which usually accompany a discussion about his guests.
Podcasts of the show are available via iTunes.
