James Carville and Mary Matalin will bring a lively conversation titled, “All’s Fair: Love, War, and Politics” on Thursday, March 24 to the IPFW Rhinehart Music Center.

The debate styled event will begin at 7p.m., earlier than the usual start time for Omnibus Lectures, and will be moderated by WANE-TV news anchor Brett Thomas.

Carville’s reputation for leading overlooked campaigns to victory began in 1986, culminating with Bill Clinton’s election in 1992. Recently, Carville has turned his expertise to global politics, focusing on campaigns around the world.

Matalin is a celebrated conservative political voice. She worked under President Ronald Reagan and served as George H.W. Bush’s campaign director, assistant to George W. Bush, and counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney.
