Charlie Cook, Political Analyst Explores Election Results

(Cazenovia, NY – Nov. 2012) Cazenovia College’s Reisman Lecture Series presents “The 2012 Elections: What Happened and Why” by political analyst Charlie Cook, editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report  and columnist for the National Journal on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 3:30 p.m. at the Catherine Cummings Theatre at Cazenovia College.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The Nov. 8, 2012 Cook Report noted that “President Obama deserves to be congratulated for his victory, as well as reminded that his win, with 50 percent of the vote, means that half of Americans who cast their ballots preferred either Mitt Romney or some other candidate.”

Cook also wrote, “The question to ask right now is this: How will the next four years be different from the last four? Or, more specifically: What did Obama learn from the first term that he will apply to the second?” He also suggested that the President play golf with members of Congress more often.

Cook was also one of the few analysts in the country who rightly assessed that New York’s 24th Congressional District was leaning towards Democrat Dan Maffei.

In addition to his Reisman Lecture keynote, Cook will interact with students on campus and attend a First Year Seminar titled America Votes. Cook will also dine and converse with students at an informal lunch gathering that precedes the lecture.
