The roughly 100 Leadership Health Care members attending this week’s delegation to Washington, D.C., enjoyed a keynote address by David Wasserman, House editor of The Cook Political Report. Wasserman offered a dynamic analysis of challenges that each party faces in the current political environment. In this video, he discusses the legislative process moving forward with regard to health care policy, prospects for the 2018 midterm elections and forecasts for the next Presidential race.

Founded in 1984, The Cook Political Report provides analyses of Presidential, U.S. Senate, House and gubernatorial races. Wasserman has served as an analyst for the NBC News Election Night Decision Desk in 2012, 2010, and 2008, and has appeared on NBC Nightly News, ABC World News, C-SPAN Washington Journal, CNN and NPR.
