Former Democratic presidential candidate Paul Tsongas is scheduled to speak at Brigham Young University on Oct. 12.
The former Massachusetts senator is tentatively set to speak in the Wilkinson Center at 3 p.m. The speech is sponsored by BYU's Young Democrats club. The event is free and open to the public.And Democratic Gov. Cecil Andrus of Idaho will speak at BYU Oct. 1 at 11 a.m. in the Wilkinson Center Ballroom instead of in the Marriott Center as was previously announced.
The speech's location was changed at the request of the Democratic Party. Party officials said they didn't think the 23,000-seat Marriott Center was necessary.
Andrus, former U.S. secretary of the Interior in the Carter administration, is the Democrats' choice to represent the party at BYU. In May, the university invited leaders of the two major political parties and independent candidate Ross Perot to be guest speakers sometime before the national elections.
