Former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen and former Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas will be at Sewanee: The University of the South at 4:30 p.m. CDT Tuesday to present “American Politics: The View from the Center” in Guerry Auditorium on the Sewanee campus.
During their overlapping terms as governors, Bredesen, a Democrat, and Douglas, a Republican, each focused on strengthening his state’s economy and fiscal position, on health reforms, and on preserving the environment, according to a news release.
They also served together in the National Governors Association and worked together on committees.
The former governors — moderate members of their respective parties — will discuss the state of American politics from a moderate’s perspective.
