Pre-election discussion about the 2008 presidential campaign

Washburn University

TOPEKA – “A Long and Great Ride” is the title of the presentation Bob Beatty, Washburn University associate professor, political science, will give at a pre-election discussion on the 2008 presidential campaign at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, in the International House, Washburn University. The public is welcome and there is no charge. As a political communication researcher and a political analyst for Channel 27 News, Beatty has observed the 2008 presidential election from the start. He logged thousands of miles while meeting all the candidates during the Iowa caucuses, attended the national nominating conventions in Denver and St. Paul, Minn., and was on-site for the presidential debate in Mississippi and the vice-presidential debate in St. Louis. Beatty will share his impressions of this remarkable campaign and take questions from the audience during his final pre-election talk.
