UF, USF political science professors discuss midterm election results

Susan MacManus, 71, speaks at the 2018 Election Wrap Up event in Pugh Hall on Tuesday night. MacManus is a professor emeritus at the University of South Florida, as well as a member of the Bob Graham Center Council of Advisors. The event, which focused on analyzing many facets of the midterm election, was sponsored by the Bob Graham Center and the League of Women Voters of Alachua County/Gainesville. One thing that MacManus honed in on was the shift from elections being dominated by baby boomers to elections being more evenly split among generations. "We're seeing a generational transformation of Florida's electorate," said MacManus.
