RIPON, Wis. (AP) -- Former Republican top aide Karl Rove is expected to discuss last year's elections during an upcoming speech at Ripon College.

Rove used to serve as the top political aide to former President George W. Bush. He's also a regular contributor on the Fox News Channel.

A Ripon College news release says Rove will speak Wednesday afternoon, with an hour-long meet-and-greet to follow.

The Fond du Lac County college says Rove will offer his thoughts on the 2012 presidential election. He's also expected to encourage campus activism, including discussing how young voters can become active in politics and engaged with current events.
