When it comes to presidential politics, Professor Christopher Galdieri is a go-to source for analysis and commentary. The politics professor teaches courses in American government and on topics ranging from the presidency and constitutional law to the New Hampshire Primary.
On Sunday, Jan. 25, he was a guest on WMUR's CloseUp discussing candidates in the upcoming campaign season in New Hampshire. Watch the clip on WMUR.
Last week Professor Galdieri reflected on the State of the Union.
"What he [President Obama] talks about becomes what everyone else is talking about," Galdieri said. "So it's enormously influential in terms of setting the agenda, in terms of defining the terms of the conversation."
Professor Galdieri's commentary on President Obama's address was aired and reported as far as Texas and Utah:

"With N.H. Primary in Full Swing, No Clear Frontrunner Among GOP Field"
Published Tues., Jan. 20, 2015
Professor Galdieri also spoke about the N.H. Primary with NHPR morning host, Rick Ganley on Tues., Jan. 20.
In discussing possible Republican candidates, Professor Galdieri said, "I think this is one of the most wide open Republican races we've seen in a very long time. Historically, Republicans tend to nominate someone who's a pretty familiar figure to people in the party. This year we have lots of them, and there isn't one who's been able to dominate the early fundraising, the early staffing."
