My research focuses on American political institutions - most notably national party organizations and campaigns and elections. I am the co-author of Republican Party Politics and the American South, 1865-1968 (Cambridge University Press, 2020 - with Jeffery A. Jenkins) - which assess internal Republican party politics in the American South at the local and national levels. I am also currently working on a book project assessing the role of the Democratic and Republican national committees in American politics. I have published articles in - among others - The Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, American Politics Research, Studies in American Political Development, and Electoral Studies.
You can find links to my published articles (as well as related data sets and do-files), additional information on my ongoing book projects, and a list of op-eds and commentary I have (co-)authored in the other pages in this section.
