We welcomed Kenneth Miller and David B. Cohen where they share their insights about key races and contested election as we learned “What to Watch for on Election Night”. Kenneth Miller is principally interested in political parties and campaign finance. He investigates how the sources of funds affect the content of campaign messages, the behavior of legislators, and the balance of power within party networks. He is also interested the downstream effects of political communication, studying how images used in campaign advertisements affect perception of candidates’ positions, and how the presentation of news affects how individuals choose which stories to read. His work has been published in The Journal of Politics, Politics and Religion, Social Science Quarterly, and The Forum.
