Author David Wessel and his new book, “Red Ink,” were celebrated last night in a book party hosted by Qorvis Communications. Partner and National Director of Financial Communications, Stan Collender coordinated the event on behalf of old friend David Wessel.

The party was well attended by members of the Washington D.C. business and media community including reporters from Bloomberg, Washington Life and Washington Journal.

The third book by Wessel, “Red Ink” discusses the high-stakes politics of the federal budget in a way that the American public can understand. He examines the 2011 fiscal year in order to explain how the budget process has grown out of control and the people and politics behind it. In his remarks at the party, Wessel acknowledged the brevity of the book saying the federal budget and deficit are confusing especially since they are generally discussed in “vague generalities.”

Focus Washington: Bill Press Forecasts the 2012 Election

On July 25, 2012, in DCView, by Focus Washington

Bill Press joins Qorvis’s Chuck Conconi on Focus Washington to forecast the 2012 election. National polls are now showing the race to be close, but the United States doesn’t elect presidents as a nation we elect them state by state. The majority of people in the U.S. Know who they are going to vote for already. This election is going to come down to the 10-20% of independents who turn out on election day. Bill Press sees the economy as the main issue this year. In his opinion Mitt Romney’s clearly for the millionaires and billionaires while Obama will fight for middle class families.
