Rather than hosting a typical meeting in December we co-sponsored a presentation hosted by Dakota County Libraries titled "What the 2018 Elections Really Meant" with David Schultz, Hamline University Professor of Political Science. He provided a review of historical shifts in political ideology and analysis of the 2016 and 2018 elections.
Professor Schultz compiled the suggested reading list below and provided us with the syllabus from a class he teaches on American politics. You may also enjoy his blog.
