Dr. Seth Masket studies American political parties at the local, state and national level. His book No Middle Ground (University of Michigan, 2009) examines the alliance of activists, donors, and officeholders that today function as unofficial parties, helping their preferred candidates win nominations and preventing others from doing so. Dr. Masket has written on state legislatures, local party organizations, campaigns, term limits, redistricting, and open primaries and other reforms to the party nomination process. He teaches courses on campaigns, parties, film, and state and local politics.
