Emile Lester Gives Opinion in Fredericksburg Newspaper

Assistant Professor of Political Science Emile Lester’s op-ed “Mormonism and the Presidency: Don’t Worry” appeared in The Free Lance-Star on Sunday, Feb. 12. Lester argues that Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith need not be a point of contention for potential voters.

Lester presented on panels at a Renaissance Weekend in Santa Monica, Calif., from Feb. 16 to 20. Renaissance Weekends are private, invitation-only gatherings of innovative leaders, and their families, from diverse fields. Participants are selected on the basis of their professional experience, personal profiles and likely contributions to the program’s breadth and depth.
