Karl Rove speaking at Concordia and St. Olaf this week

Two Minnesota college campuses are getting visits this week from an influential White House figure during former President George W. Bush's tenure.

Senior Bush adviser Karl Rove planned to address a Concordia College gathering Tuesday night. It was organized by the Concordia Conservatives and College Republicans. He was expected to fill a 700-seat auditorium on the Moorhead campus.

On Thursday, he is scheduled to appear at St. Olaf College in Northfield at the request of that school's student-run Political Awareness Committee.

Rove has been touring the country to reflect on the past administration and critique the present one.
