Commentator Bay Buchanan to discuss immigration at Bates College
Bay Buchanan, one of the most prominent contemporary conservative voices, offers a lecture at 7 p.m. Monday, March 8, in Chase Hall Lounge at Bates College, 56 Campus Ave.
Buchanan will address immigration issues in the United States. Sponsored by the Bates College Republicans, this event is open to the public at no cost.
Buchanan began her political career as the national treasurer of former President Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaigns in 1980 and 1984. In 1981, Reagan appointed her as treasurer of the United States. At age 32, she was the youngest person to hold that position since its establishment in 1775.
From 1996 into 1999, Buchanan co-anchored “Equal Time,” a political talk show on CNBC and later MSNBC.
Buchanan is now president of The American Cause, an educational foundation dedicated to advancing conservative issues, and is co-chair of a political action committee that opposes amnesty for illegal aliens.
Buchanan has a master’s degree in mathematics from McGill University. In 1981, she received an honorary doctor of law degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Ala.
