Day Two General Session Provided Insight and Analysis into the Current Political Landscape

Mark Shields, a Democratic political commentator and columnist, and Alex Castellanos, a GOP strategist, advisor, and commentator shared their opinions, insight and analysis of the current political landscape to start the second day of the March on Washington | Private Duty Integrated Conference and Exposition. The morning’s general session allowed both speakers to address the crowd, as well as including a question and answer session that was moderated by NAHC president Val J. Halamandaris.

Both Shields and Castellanos offered their opinion on the direction of the country, as well as insight into the 2012 election. “The Republicans lost in 2012 because they didn’t adapt, they were the party of “no” and they didn’t engage in social responsibility,” said Castellanos.
