Event Details

Join us for an inside look from the outsider's perspective of running as a major party candidate in the 21st century context of insider politics and extravagant campaign spending.

In 2014, Charlie Hardy, a 75-year-old former Catholic priest who spent nearly a decade serving the poor from a cardboard shack in a Venezuelan slum ran as the Democratic Party nominee for the US Senate in the Republican stronghold of Wyoming. Running solely on grassroots funds, Charlie ran against a well financed opponent, receiving little support from his own party's establishment. Charlie v. Goliath follows this unorthodox nominee on his Quixotic adventure.
Following the screening, Charlie will discuss his experience with Pete Peterson who, the same year, ran his own low-budget campaign as a Republican candidate for Secretary of State in California. In a state that hasn't had a single Republican elected to statewide office since 2006, Pete faced his own well-financed opponent, and also received little support from his party's establishment. Come hear from two very different candidates with very different political goals as they discuss their own experiences, and implications for future office-seekers.

Refreshments will be provided for all that register.

Organizer

Pepperdine, School of Public Policy

Today's public leaders not only need to possess the tools of effective policy analysis, but they must understand how these policies will be accepted and sustained by a public. Pepperdine offers students that distinctively comprehensive curriculum, which contemplates that there is, indeed, a "public" in public policy – one that must be both involved and informed to form sustainable solutions.
