Sam Clovis Jr., professor and chair of business administration and economics at Morningside College, will moderate a panel called “After Super Tuesday – An Examination of Candidates and Issues” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, in the UPS Auditorium in Lincoln Center, 3627 Peters Ave.
The public is invited to the free event, which is sponsored by the Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS).
Panelists will talk about who is left standing after the bulge of primaries that occurred on Feb. 5.
“Twenty-four states hold some form of presidential primary on that date as part of the nominating process for each political party,” Clovis said. “Usually after Super Tuesday, the leaders are clearly known, and in most cases, the likely nominee is known. This year, things are a little different. We have multiple strong candidates in each party, so we may even get to the party conventions before each of the nominees is known. That is exciting for political scientists.”
