Dan Balz, political correspondent for the Washington Post, is the speaker for the University of South Carolina’s Buchheit Family Lecture on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

Balz will discuss the political climate in the aftermath of the 2012 election, touching on the meaning of the election for both parties and what the election did and didn't do to break the political gridlock in the country.

Dan Balz has worked for the Washington Post since 1978, serving as national editor, political editor and White House correspondent prior to becoming chief correspondent. In 2011, he received the White House Correspondents' Association's Merriman Smith award for excellence in presidential coverage under pressure. He is completing a book on the 2012 presidential election campaign.

The Buchheit Family Lecture Series was created in 2000 in honor of the late Phil Buchheit, the former president and chairman of Mid-South Management Company and the former publisher of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal. The series is sponsored by the Buchheit Family Endowment, which provides undergraduate scholarships and graduate and doctoral fellowships to students of the university’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
