Tuesday Salon:  Don Beachler, "Barack Obama Meets the Tea Party:  The 2010 Elections"


Contributed by Cheryl Kramer

Are you interested in what's going on in the 2010 midterm elections?  Then join us in the Handwerker Gallery at 4.00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 5, for “Barack Obama Meets the Tea Party:  The 2010 Midterm Elections” the first Tuesday Salon of the semester.  Don Beachler, associate professor of politics, will lead a discussion on the elections during the current political and economic climate that may produce the most conservative Congress since the 1920s.

The Tuesday Salon is a Handwerker Gallery program aimed at providing students, faculty, staff, and members of the community a forum outside of the classroom for intellectual discussion and debate. Topics are selected by our guest discussant, who provides a 10-minute introduction and moderates the ensuing conversation.
