Brandywine’s Stephen Cimbala to present lecture on 2016 presidential election

MEDIA, Pa. — It may seem earlier than usual to discuss presidential hopefuls for the 2016 election, but since the race for the White House is in full swing, let’s call in the political expert: Stephen Cimbala.

Cimbala, distinguished professor of political science at Penn State Brandywine, will discuss the prospects and the pitfalls of the 2016 presidential campaigns at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 4, in Room 113 of the Main Building at Penn State Brandywine.

At the lecture, Cimbala will examine the purpose of campaigns regarding the candidate selection, fundraising and support base; provide an overall understanding of American campaigns and elections and how they are unique among other democracies; and of course share his 2016 election scenarios and possible outcomes.

Cimbala serves on the editorial boards of various professional journals and has consulted for a number of U.S. government agencies and defense contractors. He specializes in international relations, national security policy, nuclear arms control, intelligence, conflict termination, and military persuasion. Cimbala has been a member of the Penn State Brandywine faculty since 1973.  

The public is welcome to attend the event. Penn State Brandywine is located at 25 Yearsley Mill Road in Media.
