Political commentator and TV personality Chris Matthews will address a Spokane audience at the premiere of a new documentary film about legendary former congressman and speaker of the House Thomas S. Foley on Thursday, April 21, at 6 p.m. at Riverside Place Event Center.
Matthews will introduce the film and meet with guests at a dinner to benefit Washington State University’s Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service. Tickets and information are available online at foley.wsu.edu/chris-matthews.
“Chris has many stories to tell about their time together in Congress. But he can also bring a unique historical perspective on the changes that have taken place in Congress and our party politics – not all of them good — since the days of Foley’s leadership. It will be a fascinating evening,” said Cornell Clayton, WSU political science professor and director of the Foley Institute.
