Travis N. Ridout

I am Thomas S. Foley Distinguished Professor of Government and Public Policy and Director of the School of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs at Washington State University where I teach courses in American Politics, Elections, Media and Politics, Political Behavior, Research Methods and Statistics. In addition, I am co-director of the Wesleyan Media Project, which has tracked all political ads aired in the United States since 2010. In early 2023, I was a Fulbright Scholar at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

My broad areas of research interest include political communication, campaigns and elections, campaign finance and political participation, and presidential nominations.
