Wednesday night Colorado College starts a four-week lecture series that culminates on Nov. 12 with a review of the midterm elections by Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Kasich is a Republican who refused to join up with Donald Trump after his own campaign for the office played out in 2016. Over the last year he’s teamed up with Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper to push for bipartisan health-care programs to sustain parts of the Affordable Care Act that are working in the states.

They teamed up against last month to speak out on Trump’s foreign trade policies.

Two of the four events in Colorado Springs require a ticket: Kasich and an Oct. 30 talk by CNN political analyst April Ryan.

Tickets are available upon in-person request beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the information desk at the Worner Campus Center at 902 N. Cascade Ave. The tickets are limited to one per request.

Tickets will be available there for the Kasich event starting on Nov. 5. Again, it’s one per person.

Wednesday night at 7, New York Times political columnist Thomas B. Edsall will speak about his work covering inequality, campaign strategy and demographics.

The lecture is at the Kathryn Mohrman Theatre at 14 E. Cache La Poudre St.

Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. Thomas Holt, professor of American and African-American history at University of Chicago, will speak in Gaylord Hall on the first floor of the Worner Campus Center.
