Dr. Harrison will center her remarks on the ongoing presidential campaigns, explaining the rise of Trumpism, the draw of Sanders among Millennials, and what we can look forward to if there is a brokered Republican convention. She will also integrate into her remarks Gov. Christie's support of Trump and what that has meant for him politically (nationally and in state) and what it could portend for his future. The wrap up will include a look ahead to the 2017 gubernatorial elections in the state.
