ARLINGTON, Va. — Larry Sabato, election analyst and founder of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, will keynote the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Political Action Committee breakfast on Monday, April 18, as part of the Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, Fla.

NACDS president and chief executive officer Steve Anderson noted that Sabato “was a big hit” among attendees at the 2012 Annual Meeting, when he spoke at a business program.

“In that highly dynamic presidential election year of 2012, he went on to predict the outcome of the race for the White House with amazing accuracy, missing the outcome of just two states in the Electoral College. He also accurately predicted 98% of the winners of the U.S. Senate, U.S. House and gubernatorial races in 2012 — which he also did in 2010, 2008 and 2006,” said Anderson. “We look forward to seeing what Sabato has to say about this highly intriguing political season.”

Sabato’s success in predicting election outcomes has earned him wide recognition. In 2006, he was named the most accurate prognosticator by Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC and the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism.

The bipartisan NACDS-PAC supports congressional candidates who understand and help to advance pro-pharmacy and pro-patient policies. The NACDS-PAC Breakfast is part of the NACDS Chain Members and PAC Breakfast, during which NACDS-related business is ­conducted. The event is open to NACDS chain members and to NACDS-PAC contributors.

News of Sabato’s engagement in the 2016 NACDS Annual Meeting is the latest in a series of announcements regarding the event. Recently, NACDS said that former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R., Ohio) and former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Martin Dempsey will speak at the Sunday, April 17, and Tuesday, April 19, business programs, respectively.
