Interest in Wisconsin vote extends to Germany

Coverage of Tuesday’s midterm Congressional elections stretched far and wide. The German radio station Südwestrundfunk (SWR), based in Baden-Baden, interviewed Prof. David Coury of Humanistic Studies and German early Tuesday morning. The focus was student interest in the elections on campus as well as expected voter turnout in the campus-based precinct at UW-Green Bay. The German radio reporter was also interested in student support of, or frustration with, the Obama administration and the impact that might have on the 2016 presidential elections.
