Politics and Caucuses 2020
Dr. Dennis Goldford will present his talk on Politics and Caucuses 2020 at the Marshalltown Public Library on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s community meeting rooms.
Following the surprising 2016 presidential election, the 2018 midterm election produced a result that dismayed some and pleased others. The presentation will explore what happened, likely explanations and, with an eye toward the 2020 Iowa Caucuses and the 2020 presidential election, the tasks ahead for both major political parties.
Dennis Goldford has been at Drake University since 1985, teaching in the areas of political and constitutional theory. With his active interest in American politics, Professor Goldford regularly serves as a political analyst for KCCI-TV in Des Moines and is asked frequently to comment on current political matters by Iowa Public Radio and other various media organizations.
Dr. Goldford is co-author, with Hugh Winebrenner, of the new, 3rd edition of The Iowa Caucuses: The Making of A Media Event (University of Iowa Press), and, most recently, author of The Constitution of Religious Freedom: God, Politics, and the First Amendment (Baylor University Press).
