Center For Governmental Studies Director Larry J. Sabato Releases "Virginia Votes 1995-1998"

July 29, 1999 -- Professor Larry J. Sabato, founder and director of the University of Virginia Center for Governmental Studies, has just released the latest installment of "Virginia Votes," his regular series of exhaustive analyses of the voting preferences, outcomes, and implications of both Virginia elections and Virginian voting in national elections. The present volume, the eighth in the series, covers the election years from 1995 to 1998, including the Gilmore gubernatorial victory in 1997, when Republicans swept all three statewide offices. It contains extensive statistical table, graphics and figures, and written commentary, and will be a valuable resource to anyone concerned with current Virginia elections and politics. The series is published by the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia.

Larry J. Sabato is the Robert Kent Gooch Professor of Government and Foreign Affairs at the University of Virginia, as well as the founder and director

of the U.Va. Center for Governmental Studies. At home in the classroom and the anchor booth alike, Sabato has written nineteen books including "Toward the Millennium: The Elections of 1996," the first volume on the 1996 presidential and congressional campaigns; "Dirty Little Secrets: The Persistence of Corruption in Politics;" and "Feeding Frenzy: How Attack Journalism Has Transformed American Politics." He is also the author of the eight-volume "Virginia Votes" series chronicling all state elections, and many articles on national and state politics.

The Center for Governmental Studies was founded in 1998 by Larry Sabato at the University of Virginia as a non-partisan, public-interest center with the twin missions of advancing political education and encouraging political reform. The Center sponsors and actively directs many programs designed to increase the quality of American political activity and the political engagement of American citizens, including the Governor's Project; the Annual National Post-Election Conference Series; the National Symposium Series; and the Youth Leadership Initiative, a multi-faceted program designed to foster informed political engagement in young citizens in schools across the nation.
