Oct. 26 Community Forum: Gazing into the Political Future
September 30, 2010
Both 2006 and 2008 were Democratic years. Now it looks like the pendulum has swung back to the Republicans — or has it? Is the Tea Party really a "party" or a "movement?" Whether party or movement, has it filtered into North Carolina? What are the prospects for the U.S. Congress and the N.C. General Assembly?
At the next Catawba College Community Forum, Dr. Michael Bitzer, an associate professor of political science and history, and chair of the Department of History & Politics, will present an overview of what the state and the nation experienced politically in 2008, what we could see in 2010, and what all this means for 2012. Dr. Bitzer is a graduate of Erskine College who earned an M.A. in history from Clemson University and a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Georgia. In 2002 he joined the faculty of Catawba College. He also serves as an elections analyst for WSOC-TV and other Charlotte television and radio stations. His teaching interests include American politics and law, and his research delves into campaigns and elections in North Carolina and the Untied States.
Come to the next Catawba College Community Forum on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. in Tom Smith Auditorium of Ralph W. Ketner Hall for a timely analysis of this year's elections and what they may mean for the future. Admission, as always, is free.
