ARLINGTON, Va. – The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) announced that Jonathan Swan, national political reporter for Axios, will speak at the NACDS Political Involvement Reception during the 2022 NACDS Total Store Expo, which will be held August 27-29 in Boston, Mass.
Swan is regarded as one of the best-sourced reporters covering both political parties in Washington, D.C. and one of the most groundbreaking interviewers on American television.
Swan serves as the lead reporter on Axios’ HBO show, during which he has interviewed global leaders — including Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky; NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg; Director General of the World Trade Organization Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala; Iraq President Barham Salih; and Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan — as well as influential Democratic and Republican leaders in the United States, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Swan’s 2020 “Axios on HBO” interview with President Trump — which was seen and shared by more than 100 million people — earned him an Emmy Award and the 2022 Aldo Beckman Award for Overall Excellence in White House Coverage.
“Jonathan Swan has distinguished himself as one of the most preeminent, political storytellers of our time, and we look forward to the unique insights he will offer on the current political environment – as we rapidly approach Election Day,” said NACDS president and CEO Steven Anderson. “Jonathan will bring tremendous value to the signature NACDS-PAC event during the NACDS Total Store Expo.”
The bipartisan NACDS-PAC supports congressional candidates who understand and help to advance pro-pharmacy and pro-patient policies. The event is open to NACDS-PAC contributors and invited guests.
