On Thursday, Nov. 1, Adam Fairclough (Emeritus Leiden University Chair) will give a public lecture on the midterm elections: “Winning while losing: How Republicans have rigged the mid-term elections.”
Despite talk of a "blue wave" in the mid-term elections, Democrats have a mountain to climb if they are to take control of Congress. Prof. Fairclough will discuss some of the obstacles they face--many of them deliberately set up by the Republican Party--and will give his prediction about the likely outcome in the Senate and House of Representatives.
Everyone is welcome; bring a friend!
