Former U.S. Sen. John Breaux will join former Congressmen Bob Livingston and Billy Tauzin as headliners for this year's annual Ed Renwick Lecture at 7 p.m. March 14 in Loyola University's Roussel Hall. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will be moderated by WVUE-TV anchor Lee Zurik.
The lecture series honors Ed Renwick, the retired director of Loyola's Institute of Politics and a legendary pollster and political analyst for WWL-TV. The series brings in national political experts to discuss politics and current events.
The theme of this year's lecture is "From the Bayou to the Beltway: Tales from Capitol Hill." The three lecturers rose through the ranks of the U.S. Senate and House during their tenures representing Louisiana in Congress. — Clancy DuBos
