Keynote Speaker

Cook Charlie  Editor and publisher of the Cook Political Report and columnist for the National Journal, Charlie Cook Jr. will be the keynote speaker at the 2019 AANP Health Policy Conference.

Cook has appeared frequently on “ABC World News Tonight,” “CBS Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “This Week.” Since the 1990s, he has appeared over a dozen times on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Over the years, Cook served as an election night analyst for CBS, CNN and NBC, and since 1996, he has appeared on the “NBC Election Night Decision Desk” in New York.

In 1984, Cook founded the independent, non-partisan Cook Political Report. Now, with a staff of six, it is a publication that The New York Times once said was “a newsletter that both parties regard as authoritative,” while CBS News’ Bob Schieffer called it “the bible of the political community.” The late David Broder of The Washington Post, long considered “the Dean” of the Washington press corps, once wrote that Charlie Cook is “perhaps the best non-partisan tracker of Congressional races.”

In 2010, Cook was the co-recipient of the American Political Science Association’s prestigious Carey McWilliams Award to honor “a major journalistic contribution to our understanding of politics.” In 2013, he served as a resident fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

On Monday, February 5, Cook’s keynote address will offer his insight into Washington politics, the midterm elections and how the legislative landscape is shaping up in the new Congress.
