One of our nation’s most admired political figures, Senator Bob Dole has given a lifetime of service to America. Prior to his retirement from the Senate in 1996, he was the longest-serving Republican Senate leader in the history of the United States. His effectiveness as a consensus-builder and his commitment to deficit reduction and economic growth earned him the admiration of Republicans, Independents, and Democrats alike. One of only 16 people ever to serve as Senate Majority Leader, Dole also served as the Republican candidate for president of the United States, the Republican vice presidential nominee, the Republican Party chairman, the Senate Finance Committee chairman, a member of the House of Representatives, a state legislator, and a county attorney during his remarkable political career. As part of his last speaking tour, this veteran leader appears at Mondavi Center to discuss today’s most pressing issues and his insights into the world of tomorrow.
