National Journal’s Ron Fournier to Provide Commentary on Presidential Election and National Political Landscape



Renowned political columnist and metro Detroit native Ron Fournier of the National Journal will take Michigan’s Center Stage at the 2016 Mackinac Policy Conference on Thursday, June 2. Fournier will examine the political landscape heading into the presidential election.

Fournier is an award-winning and nationally acclaimed senior political columnist and editorial director of the National Journal. He is known for his hard-hitting reporting on Congress, the White House and both major political parties. He brings unique perspectives to the current political environment, including how to lead during this period of immense change, how to prepare for a future ruled by restless populism, and the rising “generation disruption.”

Fournier is co-author of The New York Times best-selling book, “Applebee’s America: How Successful Political, Business, and Religious Leaders Connect With the New American Community.” His next book, “Love That Boy: What Two Presidents, Eight Road Trips, and My Son Taught Me About a Parent’s Expectations,” will be released in April.
