The race for The White House has begun and candidates who agree on very little agree on one thing; The National Press Club is a MUST stop on the campaign trail.
The Wall Street Journal called former Gov. Rick Perry's (R-TX) July 2015 address at the Press Club "the speech of the campaign so far." Bernie Sanders' campaign was kick-started by an appearance at the Press Club earlier this year. Marco Rubio made big news here, as did Jim Webb. A surgeon (Ben Carson), a business tycoon (Donald Trump) and a tech executive (Carly Fiorina) have also spoken from the legendary National Press Club podium as they have tested the waters, their remarks and Q&A sessions transmitted live through traditional and new media channels to a global audience through the NPC's broadcast operations center.
This is just the beginning. More are already scheduled, and we expect you will see all the candidates appear at the National Press Club before the 2016 election. Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter and several other Presidents announced their candidacies here. Candidates who visit the Press Club follow in the footsteps of history. Stay tuned.
