Speaking of PoliticsGAMBIER, Ohio (September 18, 2004) Given that no Republican presidential candidate from Abraham Lincoln to George W. Bush has won the election without winning Ohio, it's only fitting that Kenyon alumni and professors converge in Gambier to make their predictions and analyze the 2004 presidential race. On Thursday, September 23, at 4:15 p.m. in Peirce Hall Lounge, two faculty experts and two alumni political pundits will participate in a panel discussion, followed by questions from community members.
Panelists will include Sam Barone, Class of 1972, former head of the Knox County Democratic Party and former congressional assistant to Democratic Congressman Gene Branstool; Assistant Professor of Political Science Pamela Camerra-Rowe; Professor Emeritus of Political Science Harry M. Clor; and Judy Hoffman, Class of 1973, chief elections counsel for the state of Ohio. Distinguished Professor of History Roy Wortman will introduce the panelists, and Professor of Political Science John Elliott will serve as moderator.
The event is sponsored by the departments of history and political science and the Kenyon Community Development Fund.
