Abstract: During the period 1960-1980, the Republican Party faced a series of intra-party conflicts regarding the question of how to increase its voting base to challenge the Democratic majority in House, Senate, and most presidential elections. This conflict predominantly played out between two camps: a conservative side, calling for an embrace of the (previously solidly Democratic) South by way of a “Southern Strategy” aimed at embracing white Southern voters who felt alienated by the Democratic Party's embrace of civil rights, and a liberal side pushing the party towards improving its electoral position in major cities and with minority groups (most notably, black voters). While it is clear that conservatives succeeded in winning this battle in the long run, this period saw a genuine competition between the competing wings over what the Republican Party should look like, and how it could become a new majority party. In this paper, I argue that the existing literature on the Republican Party's move South has largely ignored the crucial role the Republican National Committee played in this process.

I argue that, throughout this period, the RNC switched between providing support for the Southern Strategy as well as the big city approach, depending on which side within the party controlled the committee. By assessing conflicts over committee control (including a major clash between Goldwater supporters and liberal Republicans after the disastrous 1964 election), and the changing levels of investments the RNC made in different voting outreach programs, I contribute to the existing literature’s assessment of Republican Party development in this period. In doing so, I rely on a series of primary sources - including documents derived from archival collections of RNC chairs Miller, Bliss, and Brock, as well as transcripts of RNC meetings from this period.

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.
