Morton Kondracke will deliver the keynote address at the Legislative & Resolutions Committee Luncheon during the 2013 Legislative Rally. He will discuss the political "state of play" in Washington that is driving many of the looming policy discussions.

Kondracke, a 37-year veteran journalist, joined Fox News in October 1996 and became co-host of The Beltway Boys, along with Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard. He is also a regular contributor on Fox New Channel’s Special Report with Brit Hume.

Kondracke served 16 years as a regular panelist on the NBC/PBS public affairs show, The McLaughlin Group, seen on over 350 stations nationwide. Before becoming the executive editor and columnist of Roll Call, Kondracke served as executive editor and senior editor of The New Republic from 1977-1991.

He was the Washington bureau chief of Newsweek, a regular panelist on This Week with David Brinkley, and a columnist for the Wall Street Journal. In addition, Kondracke received the Washington Post "Crystal Ball Award" in 1994 for predicting the Republican takeover of Congress, and was runner-up in 1996.

The rally will take place at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, D.C., from March 11-13. For more information and to register, please
