SAF Adds White House Correspondent to Congressional Action Days Program
Major Garrett, the CBS News’ Chief White House Correspondent and columnist at large for National Journal, has been added to the lineup at the Society of American Florists’ 38th Annual Congressional Action Days, March 12-13 in Washington, D.C.
He will share his insider’s perspective of the political scene, during the SAFPAC Reception and Dinner on March 12.
“He is a big deal,” said Shawn McBurney, SAF’s senior director of government relations. “Major Garrett is universally recognized as balanced, having worked for the White House teams of both CNN and Fox News. His speeches are known for his anecdotes from his time on Capitol Hill, relationships with top political players, and from the presidential campaigns he’s covered.”
For 30 years, Garrett has reported from the front lines of the nation’s pressing issues, chasing and breaking news stories. He began his journalism career as a police and general assignment reporter, and has since covered Congress for two major magazines and served as White House correspondent for three television networks. As the Chief White House Correspondent for CBS News, he covered the 2016 Republican race for the White House. Beginning in the summer of 2015, he covered every GOP debate and significant campaign event for CBS.
Garrett’s presentation is among the highlights of SAF’s Congressional Action Days. Last year, Congressional Action Days drew 119 growers, wholesalers, retailers and suppliers to Washington, D.C., to talk to lawmakers on Capitol Hill about their businesses and the floral industry’s legislative priorities.
