Senior Obama Advisors, Axelrod, Plouffe, Favreau to Visit UAlbany

The University at Albany will host the architects of Barack Obama's two successful presidential campaigns.

On Saturday, Sept. 28, the school's "World Within Reach" speaker series will host David Axelrod [pictured here], David Plouffe and Jon Favreau for a night "Inside the Obama Campaign." Axelrod is Obama's former senior advisor, Plouffe was his campaign manager and Favreau is former director of speechwriting for the president.

Students are allowed to ask questions, but they will be filtered through the school's Student Association, which is now gathering them ahead of time.

The event will be held on the same day Robert Jones will be installed as the school's 19th president.
