Travis N. Ridout

I am Thomas S. Foley Distinguished Professor of Government and Public Policy and Professor in 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–and is ramping up its study of the 2018 campaign.

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