Former Fifth District Congressman John Spratt will be entering the world of academia to discuss a number of experiences he encountered during his nearly 30 years in Washington. This fall, Spratt will be joining Winthrop University to become the school’s Visiting Distinguished Professor of Public Policy and Leadership. He will help teach a political science course on national security policy and deliver a series of lectures drawn from his experiences. During his time in Washington, Spratt became one of Congress’ most influential democrats while serving as chairman of the House Budget Committee and a member of the House Armed Services Committee during his 28 years in the U.S. House. Spratt was defeated in the 2010 election by Republican Mick Mulvaney.
