Join us at the OHub as we host Dr. Jason Johnson in an event about political entrepreneurship on Feb. 19th at 6:30pm.In the wake of consultants who effortlessly move from campaigners to policymakers, the dearth of knowledge about the attitudes, beliefs and strategies of the consultants themselves is still a glaring absence in the analysis of American politics. How can we purport to know what is happening in American political campaigns if we don’t know what is on the minds of the men and women who run them?Political Consultants and Campaigns: One Day to Sell looks at consultant behavior on message formation, policy positioning, candidate recruitment and negative advertising. Do political consultants create campaign messages based on campaign context, the candidate’s traits, or both? Do consultants see a connection between how candidates campaign and how they actually govern?
