Ex-Obama Aid To Speak At Fort Hays State

Associated Press - October 21, 2014 6:09 am

Fort Hays State University could be generating electricity from wind turbines in the next few weeks

Former White House press secretary Jay Carney will speak at Fort Hays State University on the eve of this year’s midterm elections.

The university says Carney will speak the evening of Nov. 3 as part of the Sebelius Lecture Series on Current Issues.

Carney resigned in May after more than three years as President Barack Obama’s primary spokesman. He was communications director for Vice President Joe Biden from 2009 to 2011 and worked at Time magazine for two decades before that.

His university speech is expected to cover topics including the situation in the Middle East, immigration and health care reform, the economy and the Nov. 4 elections. He’ll also talk about working with the White House press corps.

Carney joined CNN last month as a political commentator.
