ARLINGTON, VA – Political analyst and columnist A.B. Stoddard has joined the USA Rice Outlook Conference as a General Session speaker where she will talk about some of the largest political stories of the day, offer insights into the relationship between Congress and the Trump Administration, and dive into the prospects for both parties and specific candidates as we head into the 2020 election.

Stoddard is associate editor and a columnist with RealClearPolitics (RCP), a media company that prides itself on nonpartisan analysis of “the most pivotal information on the day’s need-to-know issues.”

Prior to joining RCP, Stoddard was a reporter and then columnist at The Hill newspaper and a Senate producer for ABC News.

A frequent guest on programs on Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN, Stoddard is known and respected for her detailed and smart political and electoral analysis.

“Love it or hate it, everything we do at USA Rice is set against the backdrop of politics, and the pace is picking up and the stakes couldn’t be higher,” said Betsy Ward, USA Rice president and CEO.  “I’m looking forward to hearing what A.B. thinks about where we are heading as a nation, the state of political discourse, and what 2020 will likely hold for us.”

Stoddard will join USA Rice Outlook Conference mainstays Nathan Childs from USDA and ProFarmer’s Jim Wiesemeyer in the General Session on the afternoon of Tuesday, December 10.

The USA Rice Outlook Conference will take place from December 8-10, in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Registration and hotel room blocks are now open.  Early registration discounts end November 6.  Go to usarice.com/outlook for more information or to register online.
