Lecture to look at midterm elections

On the eve of the election, longtime federal government official Powell A. Moore will discuss “Washington Insights Over Half a Century: Midterm Elections in the Sixth Year of a Two-Term Presidency” Nov. 3 at 3:30 p.m. in Room 271 of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

The lecture will consider whether the Democrats will maintain control of the U.S. Senate or if control will shift to the Republican Party. Co-sponsored by the School of Public and International Affairs, the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, the lecture is open free to the public.

A UGA alumnus, Moore most recently served as representative of the U.S. secretary of defense to the Organization for Security and Cooperation (2006-2009). Active in public policy affairs in Washington, D.C., for more than 40 years, Moore also has served as assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs under President Ronald Reagan; on the White House staff under Presidents Nixon, Ford and Reagan; and as chief of staff for Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee.
