Abstract: Existing literature on modern national party organizations in American politics has concluded that the national committees of both the Democratic and Republican party (respectively the DNC and RNC) act as “service providers” to candidates. As such, this same literature has also concluded that the committees have no influence on major decisions within the party. In contrast, I argue that party leaders use the national committees as tools to define and promote their party’s brand. In so doing, the DNC and RNC not only play a crucial role in informing voters of the positions their party supports as a coherent, national party – they also help decide what those positions are. In this paper, I rely on a case study of activities by the RNC in the period 1960-1980 to illustrate the powers of the national committees in this regard. This period is interesting because it covers a Republican Party facing major internal conflict regarding its political direction between conservatives and liberals. The RNC – depending on which wing of the party controlled it – invested in a series of programs intended to influence this conflict, including making major inroads in the South in the 1960s (Operation Dixie).

Abstract: In the wake of the growing call from many within the Republican Party to "move beyond race," and the growing number of black Republican politicians voted into office, this paper asks- Can black Republican politicians/candidates gain support from white Republican voters by using race neutral rhetoric? We argue that black Republicans are compelled to discuss issues of race in order to counteract the stereotypes that, as black politicians, they are more liberal and Democratic than their white counterparts. Through experimental methods, we find that black Republican politicians are rewarded when they use racial rhetoric to distance themselves from other blacks. These results suggests that despite the call to move beyond race, black Republicans are constrained in how post-racial they can be.

Abstract: Within the Republican Party, party elites, political donors and voters perceive Republican women as moderate. In an increasingly polarized political landscape, this results in a dearth of Republican women vying for higher office. Despite this trend, early in the 2016 presidential primaries, Republican Carly Fiorina briefly rose to prominence. In this manuscript, I examine how Fiorina articulated and re-articulated gendered discourses of a conservative woman in an effort to move beyond perceptions of moderation. A qualitative semiotic phenomenological content analysis of her campaign’s official Facebook posts reveals three gendered discourses that emphasize her gender while highlighting her identity as Republican politician. These discourses are: From Secretary to CEO, Every B Word in the Book, and Lady Liberty. This research begins to fill a gap in the communication literature related to women in politics and the construction of gender conscious conservative identities. Additionally, it provides a communications strategy for overcoming stereotypes.
