UALR political science professors to discuss election results Nov. 10

University of Arkansas at Little Rock

Political science professors from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock will be on hand to answer community members’ burning post-election questions on Thursday, Nov. 10.

After the dust has settled from the Nov. 8 general election, the UALR School of Public Affairs will host a post-election discussion at 2 p.m. Nov. 10 in Donaghey Student Center Meeting Room D.

UALR political science professors Eric Wiebelhaus-Brahm, Joe Giammo, and Chris Williams will discuss the election results, look ahead to a new President and Congress in 2017, and then answer questions from the audience.

“Our goal is to help the community understand how the political process works and the factors that shaped election outcomes,” Wiebelhaus-Brahm said.

Among the topics up for discussion will be predictions on the new President’s foreign and domestic policies, Cabinet appointments, and Supreme Court nominations. Central to these issues will be the new President’s relationship with Congress.

“What those dynamics look like will depend on which party gains the presidency and which party gains control of one or both houses of Congress,” Wiebelhaus-Brahm said.
