For Immediate Release

Tired of wading through the media hype surrounding this year’s presidential race? Dr. Todd Belt, University of Hawaii at Hilo associate professor of political science, will guide participants of his “Elections 2008” class through a critical analysis of the candidates, the issues and the election process.

The class begins on October 15 and runs every Wednesday 5:30-7 p.m. to November 5, the day after the elections, for a final discussion on the outcomes and possible implications. The class will be held in UCB 114 and cost is $25, with a $5 discount for members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

Belt will discuss key issues in the election process, analyze the candidates, and make projections based on popular appeal, issue positions, campaign strategy, elite endorsements, campaign finance and electability. The class will also discuss crucial U.S. congressional races.
