US Elections – our two events so far in the media

Friday October 5th Michael T. Corgan, Associate Professor of International Relations at Boston University talked to an interested crowd at the University of Iceland on the upcoming US elections. The talk covered the odd and new features of the presidential election, such as: Super-Pacs and billionaires, ‘Voter fraud’ and voter suppression, swing states, the ‘campaign’ of Netanyahu, and the possible ‘October Surprise’.  Here´s a link to a radio interview on Icelandic National Broadcasting: http://www.ruv.is/ras-1/forsetaembaettid-of-stort

Tuesday October 9th at the Nordic house we had a second event on the US elections this fall when two political consultants from the US gave us the Republican and Democrat perspective of the upcoming elections. Bob Carpenter and Rick Ridder both have extensive experience in the field of political consulting and campaign management. The event was moderated by Þóra Arnórsdóttir, MA in International Relations and former Presidential Candidate.
