The South Dakota Democrat was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1978 and to the U.S. Senate in 1986. He was defeated in 2004 by Republican John Thune.
Daschle is now a senior policy advisor at the law firm DLA Piper and a long-time advocate for universal health care.
The talk is scheduled to be from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, 200 Columbus Blvd. Tickets are $25 and anyone interested should register at www.cthealthcouncil.com
