Successful political operatives and analysts, Ana Navarro and Bakari Sellers team up to deliver a presentation with mesmerizing behind-the-scenes anecdotes, fervent debate, and political know-how.
Ana Navarro is a well-known Republican strategist, political analyst, and political contributor for CNN, CNN en Español, Telemundo, ABC News, and ABC’s The View. Dubbed a “Republican power-consultant” by the Miami New Times, she counts Governor Jeb Bush and Senator Marco Rubio as confidants and is respected on both sides of the aisle for her straight shooting and candor. A regular on NBC's Meet the Press, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, and ABC's The View, she most recently served as the national Hispanic co-chair for Governor Jon Huntsman’s 2012 campaign and was the national co-chair of Senator John McCain’s Hispanic Advisory Council in 2008—leading the Tampa Bay Times to call her “a sought-after voice in Republican politics and an adviser for any presidential hopeful.”
Bakari Sellers made history in 2006 when, at just 22 years old, he defeated a 26-year incumbent State Representative to become the youngest member of the South Carolina state legislature and the youngest African American elected official in the nation. In 2014, Sellers won the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor and is widely considered to be a rising star within the Democratic Party and leading voice for his generation. Sellers served on President Barack Obama’s South Carolina steering committee during the 2008 presidential election. He was named to TIME magazine’s "40 Under 40" in 2010 as well as 2014’s “The Root 100” list of the nation’s most influential African Americans.
Ana Navarro and Bakari Sellers are not afraid to tell it like it is on television, via social media, and in their larger-than-life presentations on stage. A dynamic duo that maintains contrarian viewpoints and the utmost respect for one another, Navarro and Sellers break down the political, social, and economic issues facing Washington and the American public. Offering thoughtful debate coupled with insider anecdotes and access, Navarro and Sellers are also able to speak expertly on the pressing topics facing and shaping the Hispanic and African American voter blocks today.
