Meghan McCain to speak at UF

Meghan McCain was driven into politics and the national spotlight at an early age as the daughter of U.S. Senator John McCain. Meghan’s exposure to American politics gave her the opportunity to hear voters debate on the most controversial issues first-hand, which encouraged her to launch a national movement to redefine Republican stereotypes and values. On Wednesday, January 27th in Pugh Hall at the University of Florida, Meghan McCain will be speaking about these values in addition to the impact of her father’s campaign trail on her life. Doors open at 7 pm, and the show starts at 8 pm. ACCENT is co-sponsoring this event with the Graham Center for Public Service, Student Government External Affairs and Women’s Leadership Council.

Raised in Phoenix, Arizona, McCain graduated from Columbia University with a degree in Art History. She completed internships with both Newsweek and Saturday Night Live before joining her father’s 2008 presidential campaign. With that, Meghan became a columnist, author and award-winning blogger.
