Neil Visalvanich: “Asian American Political Candidates: An Experimental View” – April 21, 2015


As America becomes more diverse, voters have been exposed to an increasingly diverse array of political candidates. This has made the study of the effect of race on minority candidacies more relevant than ever before.
