Dr. John Green

Dr. John Green, director of UA's Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics and a distinguished professor of political science, was interviewed last week for the Monday, Nov. 5 edition of the ABC News program, “Nightline.” 

Bill Weir, a news anchor with “Nightline,” interviewed Green on Oct. 31 as they walked along Akron's Main Street and discussed Ohio's importance in the upcoming presidential election.

Weir and the Nightline staff have been touring the “battleground” states and doing segments from each one, going to barber shops, lunch counters and other spots of Americana in Ohio, Wisconsin, Florida and Virginia. The Ohio segment was the last to air prior to the Nov. 6 election.
