The Winona State University (WSU) Retiree Center’s Senior University program will host “Election 2018: Follow the Money” from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Thursdays, October 18, and 25, and November 1 and 8, in Maxwell Hall, room 257, on the Winona State campus.
The 2018 elections promise to be extremely important. The future of the Trump presidency and of the American political landscape for years to come will be at stake. To be elected are all 435 members of the House, 34 Senators, and 36 state governors. This class will examine some key races and the consequences of their outcomes. Attendees will examine the role of political parties and of other organizations in recruiting candidates, raising money, conducting campaigns and assuming responsibility for governing.
Jim Bromeland taught political science at WSU for 35 years, with a specialty in American politics.

Senior University is open to all adult learners in the Winona community, not just WSU retirees. The program is a series of non-credit short courses that are peer-led by WSU faculty, retirees and community members. The goal is to provide intellectual and cultural stimulation and growth for lifelong learners. Courses cover current events, history, philosophy, science, art, poetry, wellness, nature, politics, literature and much more.
