Former Chairman of the Republican National Committee to Speak at WSU

Richard Richards, author of "Climbing the Political Ladder One Rung at a Time" and former chairman of the Republican National Committee, will discuss "The History and Nature of Presidential Campaigns" on Oct. 4 at 1:30 p.m. in the Lindquist Alumni Center on the WSU Ogden campus.

Richards became involved in Utah's Republican Party at a time when it was a perennial also-ran. Inspired by his personal convictions and dedication, this Weber College alumnus helped to transform the party into the state political powerhouse it is today. Along the way, his success in Utah caught the attention of the GOP's national committee and led to prominent roles in the Nixon, Reagan and Bush presidential campaigns.
