CNNís Candy Crowley to forecast elections
Candy Crowley, chief political correspondent for CNN, is the speaker for the University of South Carolina’s annual Buchheit Family Lecture Wednesday, Oct. 6.
The lecture, titled “What Happened to the Politics of Hope? A Forecast for 2010 and 2012,” will take place at 7 p.m. in Belk Auditorium of the Darla Moore School of Business. It is free and open to the public.
Based in CNN’s Washington, D.C., bureau, Crowley anchors “State of the Union with Candy Crowley.” Crowley, who earned a Gracie Allen Award in 2009 for coverage of Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House, covers presidential, congressional and gubernatorial races and major legislative developments on Capitol Hill.
A graduate of Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, Crowley began her journalism career in Washington in radio for Metromedia’s station WASH. She became a White House correspondent for the Associated Press and later was a general assignment correspondent for NBC before joining CNN’s political reporting team in 1987.
The Buchheit Family Lecture Series was created in 2000 to honor the late Phil Buchheit, the former president and chairman of Mid-South Management Company and the former publisher of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal. The series is sponsored by the Buchheit Family Endowment, which provides undergraduate scholarships and graduate and doctoral fellowships to students of the university’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
