Jon Delano stands addresses audience listening to a panel of experts. 2014 Election Analysis Forum
7 p.m. Nov. 11
Eberly Hall, Room 110

Just one week after American voters make their choice, a popular team of political experts returns to Cal U to examine the reasons behind the results and look ahead.

Political commentator Jon Delano, of KDKA-TV, will serve as moderator for the 2014 Election Analysis Forum.

The program is free and open to the public.

Panelists are:

  • Alan Abramowitz, professor of Political Science at Emory University, Ga.
  • William C. Binning, chair emeritus of the Department of Political Science at Youngstown State University, Ohio.
  • Louis Jacobson, deputy editor/senior writer for the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact.com website, a contributing writer/elections handicapper for PoliticsPA, a state politics columnist for Governing, and a former contributing editor at National Journal magazine.
  • Costas Panagopoulos, director of the Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy and the graduate program in Elections and Campaign Management at Fordham University, N.Y.

Why it matters

“The 2014 midterm election promises to be an ‘all-nighter,’ as many key races are virtual dead heats and party control of the Senate hangs in the balance,” says Dr. Melanie Blumberg, a professor in Cal U’s Department of History and Political Science and campus director of the American Democracy Project.

“The election gurus return to dissect the results and tell us what they mean for 2015 and beyond.”  

Event sponsors

The presentation is sponsored by the American Democracy Project at Cal U.

Co-sponsors are the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost/Academic Affairs, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Department of History and Political Science.

Registration is not required. Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance in California, Pa.
