Kenneth Miller (Political Science), and co-editors John Green and David Cohen have published State of the Parties 2022: The Changing Role of Contemporary American Political Parties with Rowman & Littlefield. The book brings together leading scholars of parties, elections, and interest groups to explore the current state of American party organizations, constituencies and resources. The volume includes “Nationalized Congressional Finance: Evidence from 2018 & 2020” by Kenneth Miller, which shows how the efficient, coordinated spending by party organizations is skewed by uncoordinated individual donors, and “Blue Metros, Red States: The Geography of the 2020 Vote in the Swing States” by David Damore (Political Science), Karen Danielsen (Public Policy) and Robert Lang (Urban Affairs), which provides a look at new trends in substate regionalism that the Biden campaign was able to capitalize on to flip Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
