Thomsen weighs in on comeback of moderate Democrats in Roll Call

Thomsen,-Danielle.jpgDanielle Thomsen, an assistant professor of political science who studies the decline of moderate candidates in Congress, was featured in the Roll Call article "The Blue Dogs Are Barking Again." "Until there are more moderates elected they aren’t going to be able to galvanize and be able to leverage the votes that they need to have any influence," Thomsen says. "And until that happens, other moderates aren’t going to view the job as particularly attractive and thus are not going to run." 05/23/18
