The eyes of Texas are upon the candidates. Who will be the “star” of the Lone Star State? Dennis Simon, a Texas political scientist at SMU, is available for analysis and says:
“Texas will be a place where ‘assumptions about the campaign thus far’ will be tested. This pertains largely to speculations about the impact of race and gender on voter choice. It will be novel as well since Texans have not seen a competitive primary race in a long time.”
Dennis Simon is the co-author of Breaking the Political Glass Ceiling – Women and Congressional Elections and associate professor of political science at SMU.
