Veteran journalist Jackie Judd, who's reported for ABC News, NPR and most recently the PBS News Hour, will moderate the next installment of Hamilton College's Common Ground series

It will take place on Thursday, April 11th at 7:30 p.m. in the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House.

The public event will feature Jim Messina, deputy chief of staff for former President Obama and Reince Priebus, former chief of staff for President Trump.

Tickets are free and can be obtained on the Hamilton College website.

Common Ground at Hamilton brings together two individuals from opposing points of view to discuss current issues. The goal is for the speakers to model the kind of respectful dialogue across political boundaries that should occur not just on college campuses, but in the broader society as well.
