“Bipartisanship & Curiosity, with Bob Mitchell”
“Ambition Is Not Enough: Explaining Candidate Emergence in State Level Politics”
In my dissertation, I examine the relationship between political training programs and representational outcomes. Specifically, I am interested in addressing the role that training programs play in fostering political ambition, particularly for women and minorities, and how completing a training program influences electoral chances of participants. I situate this work in the candidate emergence literature and the literature about participation as these programs have assumed, but largely untested, benefits for individuals with political ambition.
