Washington Post political columnist Jennifer Rubin to speak in Gettysburg


Washington Post political columnist Jennifer Rubin will speak on “Defending American Democracy: The Midterm Test” on Tuesday, September 6 at 7:00 p.m. in Mara Auditorium on the Gettysburg College campus.

The evening is sponsored by Jewish Studies at Gettysburg College.

According to Wikipedia, Rubin was a conservative political commentator throughout most of her career, but became a critic of President Donald Trump and in 2020 announced that she no longer identified as a conservative, becoming an advocate of the Biden Administration.

Mara Auditorium is located on the main floor of Masters Hall, which is situated in front of the campus fountain. Parking is available in Masters Lot off Constitution Avenue which runs between Washington Street at the railroad track to Lincoln Avenue.


Rubin’s talk is open to the community and pre-registration is not required.

  • We went to hear Jennifer Rubin last night. She gave a fact based, searing analysis on the state of democracy. Jennifer, a former conservative republican, believes democracy is under grave threat from election deniers and others who are willing to support authoritarian ideas – that the upcoming midterms are the most important elections in at least least a life time if not ever. Her bottom line, this election is about one thing above all, saving our democracy, and that we must vote in the upcoming midterms and encourage others to do so.
