Prof. Hans Hassell of the Department of Politics will speak. Campaigns are largely considered to be candidate-centered affairs. Using a simple measure of party support I show that candidates who are less connected to the party are less likely to win and also less likely to remain a candidate in the primary. I find that parties are effective not only in helping candidates win but also are effective in shaping the options presented to primary voters. Scholarship on candidate emergence has largely ignored the influence of political parties in primaries and their ability to affect the decisions of candidates to compete for the party’s nomination.
