Ridge’s plan to ‘brand’ U.S.
Former Pennsylvanian Republican Governor Tom Ridge spoke in Carnegie Mellon’s Kresge Theatre on Thursday about the issues in this year’s presidential campaign.
Associate professor in social and decision sciences Kiron Skinner is the head of the Center for International Relations and Politics, which hosted the event. Skinner said that the Center’s scope is not limited to international issues, and includes domestic ones as well. “Some of our speakers, like Governor Ridge, have held significant positions on the domestic side, as governor, as congressman, but also ones that have more international implications, like his time at Homeland Security,” she said.
