    Are you ready to have your political beliefs challenged? National Review editor Rich Lowry is the man to do it. With humor and extensive knowledge, Lowry offers a vigorous enthusiasm for the precepts of American democracy, advocating for the tenants of conservatism with a new perspective, and serving as a voice of the younger conservative generation. Regardless of where you may fall on the political spectrum, Lowry can deliver a skillful debate. Credible yet provocative, the nationally recognized expert’s commentary is sought after by a broad range of leading media platforms. A University of Virginia graduate, Lowry contributes to FOX News and has written for the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and a variety of other publications. Plugged-in to the latest national political events and trends, Lowry promises to deliver an unapologetically opinionated take on the challenges facing our country. MODERATED BY: John Quarstein
