I am the co-author of Republican Party Politics and the American South, 1865-1968 (Cambridge University Press, 2020) and have published in journals such as The Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, Perspectives on Politics, Studies in American Political Development, and Political Behavior. I teach courses on American Political Parties, Campaigns and Elections, The US Congress, and American Political Institutions.
