While political watchers are familiar with the upcoming slate of presidential candidates, of equal importance are the 2008 congressional elections that will determine which party controls the United States House of Representatives and the Senate.

Charlie Cook, whose nonpartisan online newsletter, the Cook Political Report, has been analyzing national elections since 1984, will provide a sneak peek at those congressional elections at a lecture on Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus on Friday, Dec. 14 at 4 p.m.

The event, sponsored by Fordham’s Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy, will be held in the 12th-Floor Lounge of Lowenstein Center.
