The Civic Engagement Institute sponsored an analysis of the 2018 mid-term elections on Tuesday, November 13th. Professors Bob Brown and Rafaele Fierro each covered a large segment of the elections including congressional races, gubernatorial elections, and Connecticut’s elections at the state and local levels. The two professors allowed time for audience questions and comments. The crowd of about 60 people including many students participated. The Bristol Press covered the event and the link to its article is here: http://www.bristolpress.com/BP-General+News/339404/the-2018-midterm-elections-what-happened-and-why-tunxis-has-some-answers .
