BOZEMAN - A forum on Friday, Oct. 12 will feature Raymond Strother, author of "Falling Up: How a Redneck Helped Invent Political Consulting," discussing the world of electoral politics.

The forum is hosted by the MSU Extended University lifelong learning program Wonderlust. It begins at noon at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 2118 S. Third Ave., in Bozeman.

It is free and open to all. Audience members are encouraged to bring a lunch. Sponsors will provide coffee and cookies.

Strother, a long-time political consultant, will give the inside scoop on the current presidential campaign. Strother's career began in Louisiana in the early 1960s when he became a pioneer in the emerging field of political consulting.

Over the years he advised hundreds of political hopefuls from Senators Lloyd Bentsen and Russell Long to Gary Hart and Al Gore. He consulted with a young Bill Clinton running for governor in Arkansas.
