The fifth annual Dodd Washington Seminar, sponsored by the office of Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd, brought together members of Congress and national policy analysts to discuss contemporary issues in U.S. political life. On May 21, a panel consisting of four congressmen and a Washington political columnist gathered to discuss the 1992 elections. To date, only one person has officially declared candidacy for the presidency in 1992, former Democratic Senator Paul Tsongas. Democratic Sen. John Rockefeller has been considering entrance to the race, while on the Republican side no candidate has yet filed for candidacy. Members of the panel discussed the political agenda facing candidates in 1992, and strategies that may be used by candidates to capture the nomination. Issues addressed by panel members include social security, health care, campaign strategies, the deficit, and the economy. close
