Navarro served as the national Hispanic co-chair for Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s 2012 presidential campaign and the national co-chair of John McCain’s Hispanic Advisory Council in 2008, where she also was the national surrogate for the McCain 2008 campaign. She also served on Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s transition team in 1998 and was his first director of immigration policy in the Executive Office of the Governor.

Navarro’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with political strategist Patrick Rosenstiel, FAU political science professor Kevin Wagner, Ph.D., and FAU communications instructor Ilene Prusher. Rosenstiel is a lifelong Republican who helped re-align Congress in the 1990s, spear-headed the California school voucher initiative in 2000 and worked with Progress for America to enact U.S. President George W. Bush’s domestic policy agenda. Rosenstiel consulted confirmation efforts for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts. Rosenstiel voted for Donald Trump in 2016 and intends to support the President again in 2020. He is a full-throated proponent of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and is senior advisor to nationalpopularvote.com.
