The 10th annual State Politics and Policy Conference, which was hosted by the University of Illinois Springfield from June 3-5, 2010, was recently spotlighted by the cable public affairs network C-SPAN.

C-SPAN aired a portion of the opening night event during a July 5, 2010 broadcast. The event, which was recorded in June at the Old State Capitol in downtown Springfield featured four former governors from different states.

The governors spoke about state politics and offered their perspectives on how political scientists provide useful input for state and local politicians. They also responded to questions from the audience.
