Overview: Now updated with coverage of the 1996 elections, Congressional Elections is for everyone who wants to know what's involved in running for Congress. Drawing on survey results and interviews with hundreds of candidates, campaign aids, party officials, political action committee managers, and political consultants, the book explores what it takes (candidates, strategies and campaign organizations) to win an election, and presents a compelling, fact-based picture of the two races all successful congressional candidates must win: one at home to win votes in their districts and one in Washington to gain support of national political leaders

Party campaigning in the 1980s by Paul S Herrnson( Book )

10 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: Paul Herrnson's excellent study provides a wealth of information from campaign participants and statistical sources about the greatly enlarged activities of national party committees in congressional elections during the 1980s, and it places these activities in an analytical framework suggesting that parties have adjusted to candidate centered politics by becoming useful intermediaries rather than dominant role-players. The book thus contributes significantly to a realistic understanding of late-twentieth-century American politics.Little attention has been paid to the role of parties in congressional elections, largely on the unexamined assumption that they had no role... Herrnson has inquired about the activities of the national parties in supporting the congressional campaign efforts of their partisans. And, he has sought to get at the importance of party campaign efforts from the candidates' eye view. He finds a considerable effect... [and] throws new light on the role of the contemporary political parties in American electoral politics

Multiparty politics in America( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of Election 2000 and the Ralph Nader factor, this collection of essays by political scientists examines the possibilities for and performance of minor parties in the American political system. Looking at the rise and fall of the Reform Party and the seeming upsurge in Green Party prospects, the authors present evidence and opinion about the viability of a multiparty system in the United States. New York party politics and Congressional and state legislative elections add depth to our understanding of party politics in action. A public opinion survey shows surprising variation in citizens' attitudes toward minor parties and multiparty politics nationwide. Will minor parties flourish or flounder in the 2004 election season? This volume offers a variety of views

The Clinton presidency : the first term, 1992-96( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the event, the presidency of these years faced major difficulties. Clinton had been elected on 43 percent of the vote, and Congressional Democrats, far from winning election on Clinton's coat-tails, were ahead of him in their constituencies. Working with Congress was a formidable task, especially with the heavy agenda of the economic recovery package, the North American Free Trade Agreement, health and welfare bills. Uncertainties abroad, from Somalia to Haiti, from Bosnia to Northern Ireland added to the pressures on the White House. Two years later Clinton was re-elected to a second term. But it was a different Clinton: the centrist 'New Democrat' had moved to the right, accommodating to a Republic-driven domestic agenda

Interest groups unleashed by Paul S Herrnson( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2010 US campaign and election was pivotal: the Republican takeover of the House, the advent of 'super PACs', and record-breaking sums spent on a midterm election. More than ever before, interest groups were able to mobilise new resources and new technologies in a shifting set of House and Senate races. This volume explores - in a series of lively case studies - a cross-section of groups, communities, and networks that vividly illustrates the 'unleashing' of interest group activity in the electoral process in response to Citizens United and other court cases and events
