U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone has had to cancel his talk planned for Wednesday, Nov. 17, at the University of St. Thomas.

Wellstone, Minnesota’s senior senator, called the university Friday to say he would be unable to visit St.Thomas because the Senate is continuing to meet longer than anticipated.

Wellstone had planned to speak at noon that day on “Cynics Don’t Change the World: Student Activism for the New Millennium.”

The talk had been sponsored by the St. Thomas Circle of ODK and the St. Thomas University Lectures Committee.
