Preface to the PDF:
Campaigns and Elections 4e, aims to present a comprehensive treatment of campaigns and elections in the United States. It is structured around four key components: the rules that govern the electoral process; the reality that candidates confront when a campaign begins; the strategies employed by important campaign actors, including candidates, parties, interest groups, and the media, the choices made by voters, which are themselves a response to the rules, reality, and strategies.
Campaigns and Elections 4th edition Goals:
This PDF aims to be comprehensive. We discuss national and state electoral rules and realities and cover campaigns at all levels of office, including presidential, congressional, state, and local. Doing so illuminates both similarities and differences. Although candidates at all levels of office have the same basic goal to craft a compelling message and thereby win elections they do so with vastly different levels of resources and thus with different kinds of campaign strategies. A presidential campaign spends
more on catering in a week than many local campaigns spend in total.
