The 2014 General Elections: Do They Matter?
Tuesday, October 28, 7:00 p.m.
In a relaxed and informal session, Dr. Alan R. Gitelson will review the 2014 congressional and gubernatorial elections nationwide and in Maine. What is in store for the nation and for Mainers? What elections should we watch closely? What is the future impact of the elections on national and state outcomes? Does 2014 predict or tell us anything about the 2016 presidential race? Time will be given for an exchange of the ideas and perspectives of those attending. This may be one of the more important elections to take place in the nation and in Maine both in terms of national and global politics.
