Profs available to comment on outcome of Pennsylvania primary


Posted: April 22, 2008



Denver – Will Pennsylvania be the keystone state in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination?

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is relying on a decisive win to reinvigorate her candidacy, while Sen. Barack Obama is hoping for an upset or a strong enough finish to secure the delegates needed to maintain his overall lead. To address the outcome of the primary, a number of Metropolitan State College of Denver professors are available, including the following:

Political Science Professor Norman Provizer has expertise in political leadership and elections. He has extensive media experience commenting on a variety of national and local political issues for The Boston Globe, The Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain News, 9NEWS, KOA Radio, FOX31, CW2 and 7NEWS.

Derrick Hudson, assistant professor of African and African American Studies, can provide perspective on how the words of the Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., former pastor of Obama’s church, has impacted his run for U.S. presidency. Hudson’s guest column (http://www.denverpost.com/opinion/ci_8891590) that addresses the controversial relationship ran in the online edition of The Denver Post on April 11. Hudson’s expertise includes race relations, African Americans and U.S. politics and theological issues.

Associate Professor of Political Science Richard Moeller has expertise in democracy, American foreign and military policy, international security, politics and the media.

To coordinate an interview with any of Metro State’s professors, please contact Angelia McGowan at 303-556-5133 or angeliam@mscd.edu.
