Sweetener Colloquium to Offer Insider Perspective on 2016 Elections

Dec 22, 2015

The International Sweetener Colloquium will feature David Wasserman, the house editor and political analyst for The Cook Political Report, as the luncheon speaker on February 23. His presentation will provide attendees an insider perspective on the 2016 elections. For a sneak peek, read his recent column, ‘The Key to the GOP Race: The Diploma Divide.”

A long-time Washington political insider, Wasserman has extensive knowledge of U.S. congressional districts and conducts research on cultural trends and voting patterns.

In his non-partisan presentation, Wasserman will discuss factors shaping the upcoming elections and the current state of politics in Washington, including how a polarized Congress continues to affect the federal agenda. He also will highlight critical races, examine party messaging and historical trends, and reveal how subgroups of voters will determine who will be the next president.

Wasserman regularly appears on national news networks as a political analyst. The Cook Political Report is an independent, non-partisan newsletter that analyzes federal and state elections and campaigns, as well as American political trends.

The International Sweetener Colloquium is an annual meeting of professionals in the sweetener industry. Co-hosted by IDFA and the Sweetener Users Association, the Sweetener Colloquium will be held at Turnberry Isle Miami in Aventura, Fla., February 21-24. Registration for the event is available online.
