Professor Wendy Schiller comes to town!

We’ve got some exciting political races this year. The Washington senatorial race is heating up. Ditto for the Connecticut LaMont-Lieberman showdown. And is there any chance that the Democrats will start to take momentum from the Republicans, after a couple sessions being the minority party in both branches of government?

To help us sort it all out, one of the nation’s foremost political experts is coming to Portland. This is Professor Wendy Schiller from Brown’s Political Science department. She has won a Fulbright Award, and prior to teaching was a Research Fellow at the Brookings Institute and a legislative aide to New York Senator Daniel P. Moynihan and New York Governor Mario Cuomo.
