Political Science Professor: If You Want Choice In Politics, Turn To Third Parties

Professor J. David Gillespie

Dr. J. David Gillespie, a former professor and vice president of academic affairs at Presbyterian College, teaches political parties and third-party politics at the College of Charleston.

Many Americans are familiar with the March on Washington led by Martin Luther King, Jr. on August 28, 1963.
