Overview

Congressional Primaries and the Politics of Representation explores the ways in which congressional primary elections appear to be changing in the face of electoral and congressional politics. The prominent contributors examine how primary elections influence the types of candidates who run, the support they receive, the positions they take, the resources they spend, the media coverage they receive, and the type of party nominees that prevail. All of these factors have significant implications for congressional general elections, the political parties, interest groups, and the day-to-day representation of constituents by congressional incumbents.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
The work's strengths include the authors' diverse perspectives, including their use of a wide array of evidence from election results, campaign spending totals, and surveys of participants. A valuable contribution for those interested in the process of recruitment, representation, and elections.

Galderisi, Ezra, and Lyons are to be congratulated for editing such a fine volume. They have assembled many of the leading scholars of congressional elections and the result is a splendid set of essays that advance our understanding of congressional primaries in many important ways. It is certainly the best single resource on congressional primaries and I highly recommend the book to everyone interested in American elections.

US political scientists examine how congressional primaries seem to be changing the congressional elections, congressional politics, and the US political system in general. In particular, they look at how they influence the types of candidates who run in general elections, the support those candidates receive, the positions they take, the resources they spend, the media coverage they receive, and the kinds of party nominees that prevail.
