The Incumbent Senator’s Ideological Vulnerability and Challenger Entry into Senate Elections

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The incumbent senator’s ideological vulnerability tends to cause the emergence of the quality challenger. The quality challenger is characterized as strategic: she is more likely to enter the contest when her prospects for winning the election are most favorable. _x000d__x000d_This study asserts that the probability that the quality challenger enters the Senate election is dependent on the ideological congruence of the incumbent senator. The most fundamental aspect to discern the incumbent’s vulnerability is how acutely she has advanced constituency’s interests in terms of ideological representation on roll call votes. The ideological deviation of the incumbent senator from the ideological preference of constituency produces a favorable condition that enhances the challenger’s prospects for winning the election, facilitating the emergence of the quality challenger. _x000d__x000d_Using Senate elections where the incumbent senator runs for reelection from 1962 to 2006, this study reveals the relationship between the ideological distance of the incumbent senator and her probability of facing the quality challenger, shedding light on the conditional nature illustrating the strategic emergence of the quality challenger in Senate elections.
