I am an associate professor of political science at the University of Alabama. My research interests include religion, electoral behavior, political parties, the radical right, and the conservative movement in America.


I earned my Ph.D in political science from the University of Houston and my undergraduate degrees in political science and print journalism from Central Washington University. 


Although I am a proud native of the Pacific Northwest, I presently enjoy life with my wife and children here in the heart of Dixie.
