"Nathan Gonzales is cut from the same mold as his mentor and business partner – Stu Rothenberg – who we have enjoyed many times over the past years at the Delta 1000 meeting:" Al Rankins.

Nathan Gonzales, political analyst and editor and publisher of the Rothenberg and Gonzales Political Report, will address Delta 1000 members at the May 20 Delta Council Annual Meeting in Cleveland, Miss.

"Nathan is cut from the same mold as his mentor and business partner – Stu Rothenberg – who we have enjoyed many times over the past years at the Delta 1000 meeting. We look forward to Nathan's remarks and introducing him to the Delta."

Gonzales is editor and publisher of The Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report, a non-partisan newsletter covering U.S. House, Senate and gubernatorial campaigns and presidential politics. He was an editor, analyst, and writer for The Rothenberg Political Report for more than 13 years before taking over the newsletter in 2015.

Since 2002, Nathan has worked as an off-air consultant for ABC NEWS on their Election Night Decision Desk. Previously, he worked for CNN and as associate producer for CNN’s Capital Gang. Nathan has appeared on NBC's Meet the Press and NBC Nightly News, the Newshour on PBS, C-SPAN's Washington Journal, CNN, and Fox News Channel, and he has been quoted in The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. 

Delta 1000 is a program begun by Delta Council over 30 years ago to ask all of the members of Delta Council to pay $100 above and beyond their regular membership dues. This support through the "Delta 1000" Program has helped Delta Council maintain one of the most effective area-wide economic development programs in the entire nation.

Gonzales’ address will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the McPherson Recital Hall of the Bologna Center and the 81st Delta Council Annual Meeting of Delta Council will begin at 10:30 a.m. This year’s meeting will include an address by Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas and other activities traditionally associated with the meeting of the region's economic development organization.

Sponsors for the 81st Annual Meeting include: BankPlus, Catfish Farmers of Mississippi, Cotton, Incorporated, Sanders, Inc., Mississippi Corn Promotion Board, Mississippi Rice Promotion Board, Mississippi Soybean Promotion Board, and Southern Ag Credit/Mississippi Land Bank.
