IWF is delighted to welcome Carrie Sheffield to our team. Carrie joins IWF as a Visiting Fellow who has extensive experience in media, politics and foreign affairs. Carrie co-hosts Bold TV, an interactive, bipartisan talk show.
CNN Money described BOLD as designed to appeal to “women, millennials, African-Americans, Latinos and members of the LGBT community — groups that Republicans and conservatives have struggled to reach in recent years.”
"There's a disconnect between these communities and the conservative movement," Carrie was quoted saying. She sees BOLD TV as a way to connect with these communities.
