Question Requests


Next week’s election panel features three distinguished perspectives.   What would you like them to address?  Submit your questions here. 



Nancy Dwight is the former executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee and a former Republican National Convention delegate.  The first woman to run a major party committee, she is a long-time Republican strategist and is chair of Dwight Partners, a political consultancy.  Mrs. Dwight is also a former Deerfield parent and trustee.


Before his current career in finance, Orin Kramer served in the Carter Administration as Associate Director of White House Domestic Policy Staff, and he earned several appointments during Bill Clinton’s presidency.  He has worked in campaign management, policy, speechwriting, and more.  Also no stranger to campus, Mr. Kramer graduated from Deerfield in 1963.


Vinson Cunningham writes for the New Yorker on books, art, and culture, most recently reviewing the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the film “The Birth of a Nation”—and previously commenting on topics from Kendrick Lamar to Ralph Ellison to Jeremy Lin.  Before his time as a writer, Mr. Cunningham served in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel, and as Director of the African American Leadership Council within the DNC.

Please submit questions by this Sunday evening, October 23.
