Early Days

Pat Robertson, in his own words:

At age 22, I was on the floor of the Democratic Party Presidential Convention in Chicago.

  • At Yale Law School, I was active in student politics.

  • Fresh out of law school in 1956, I headed the Stevenson For President Committee for one of the boroughs of New York City.

  • I worked hard for my father's losing Senatorial reelection campaign in 1966.

  • I gave the nominating speech for a US Senatorial candidate at the Virginia State Democratic Party Convention in 1978.

He also sought the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 1987. See presidential campaign for more on this effort.

"It could be said that, for me, involvement in the affairs of government, foreign policy, fiscal policy, and politics itself is as natural as breathing," Robertson said.

He is past president of the prestigious Council on National Policy. In 1982 he served on President Ronald Reagan's Task Force on Victims of Crime. He is currently a member of the Board of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, and previously served on the Governor's Council of Economic Advisors in the State of Virginia.

Associated with the American Enterprise Institute, Robertson attends the annual Public Policy Week Conference, and in 1982 established the AEI World Forum, which he hosts annually in Vail/Beaver Creek, Colorado. This is an international gathering of former and current world leaders and business executives to discuss political and business policies impacting current issues.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
—Philippians 4:13
