Matt Streb talks about the series with WNIJ's Dan Klefstad
As candidates head into the final 60 days before the election, Northern Illinois University will spotlight the issues which have helped to shape the political forum for this year’s presidential election.
Join WNIJ in digging into some of the wheelings, dealings, and realities of presidential politics. This fall’s "Presidential Speaker Series" concludes on November 8th with “An Evening with Dennis Hastert and Bill Lipinski,” at NIU-Naperville.
Today is primary election day in Illinois. In addition to selecting candidates to represent their parties, Illinois citizens are voting on a variety of county and municipal referenda. WNIJ will bring you election results after the polls close this evening, starting at 7pm. WNIJ's Dan Klefstad will host our coverage. He'll be joined in the studio by NIU Political Scientist Matt Streb, on-hand to analyze today's results. We'll also have field reports from WNIJ's Susan Stephens and Guy Stephens
