Welcome back to Season 4 of The Ballpark from the LSE US Centre! This season we’re continuing our State of the States theme and exploring some fascinating US states and the key policy issues within them. For our Season 4 premiere, we’re heading to the Bluegrass State – Kentucky – to talk about the state’s geography, state politics, and political realignment with Professor Anne Cizmar, Associate Professor of Government at Eastern Kentucky University.
