Political science professors from around Kansas will gather later today (THUR) to discuss the 2012 election. Washburn University in Topeka is hosting the meeting, which will focus on the campaign and the election results. Nationwide, Democrats held the presidency and gained some seats in Congress. Washburn political science professor Bob Beatty says they’ll look at how different the election results were nationally and in Kansas, where conservative Republicans gained power in the state Legislature.
Following the political discussion, the analysts will take questions from the audience. The event is free, and it will be held at the Washburn law school building at 5:30 today (THUR).
Web only: The event is scheduled for Thursday from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. in room 102 of the law school building on the Washburn campus.
