Co-Authors Ross Douthat and Reihan Salam, talked about their book, Grand New Party: How Republicans Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream, published by Double Day. In their book, Douhat and Salem argue that Republicans need to adapt to the changing political landscape and rebuild a Republican majority by bringing in more working-class voters. They say that the world is changing but Republicans are stuck in Reagan Republicanism.

Ruy Teixeira, a joint fellow at the Center for American Progress, and David Frum, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, also contributed to the discussion. Panelists responded to questions from the audience following their remarks. close
