Politics and Journalism Class working on blog for Senate race

The 2014 U.S. Senate race is coming to an end in just a few days, and has been a major buzz in Campbellsville University’s Politics and Journalism class. The class, taught by Bill Goodman from KET, has set their focus on following the upcoming Senate race and election. The students are using social media sources to not only get themselves involved in the race, but their peers on campus as well. The MAC 380 class meets every Friday from 1 – 3:30 p.m. to discuss aspects of the senate race that affects voters across Kentucky. The nine students have been working on a project to put the media in their own hands by creating a blog to increase attention for the race and a poll that they have conducted. The classmates each questioned Campbellsville University students on how social media was being used and their opinion on the upcoming senate election. The blog, "Kentuckians to DC," can be accessed at The members of the class are Starla Bond, Meredith Eastham, James Higgins, Logan Johnson, Cameron Miller, Dylan Morse, Kendall Riddle, Michael Rothacke and Matthew Schmuck.
