Election 2008: ODU Political Scientists Provide Local and National Commentary

Faculty members from Old Dominion University's political science department were tapped by local media and CNN to comment on this year's elections, and guest hosted a blog on election night for WAVY.com.

Assistant Professor Joshua Behr was interviewed Friday by CNN about the Virginia elections, as well as by The Virginian-Pilot about the effects of weather on voter turnout and polling practices. The latter story also appeared in Hispanic Business.

Assistant Professor Jesse Richman bloged online for WAVY.com Tuesday, Nov. 4, offering an analysis of the incoming election results. WAVY-TV interviewed Richman earlier this month about voter registration in Virginia and in August about the state elections. The Virginian-Pilot interviewed him about the local elections.
