Presidents and the Congressional Black Caucus: Electoral Incentives and Budget Politics

Brian Newman will discuss his research paper (co-authored with John Griffin of University of Colorado, Boulder).  What are the racial consequences of presidents’ incentives to move toward the median voter as elections approach?  If presidents move toward the center, they may move away from non-centrist groups like the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).  We compare the president’s annual budget proposal to the CBC’s alternative budget from 1980 to 2012 testing whether Democrats’ (Republicans’) budgets are less (more) congruent with the CBC’s alternative budgets in election years.

About the Speaker

Brian Newman is a professor of political science at Pepperdine University. He received an M.A. and Ph.D. from Duke University and B.A. from Michigan State.  Brian does research in Presidency Research, Legislative Studies and Elections, Public Opinion and Voting Behavior.

Since the mid-1990s, Dr. Richard C. Olsen’s research and teaching has been in remote sensing, and in particular, spectral imaging, working with airborne systems, and satellite imagers. In the past decade, he has focused on 3D imaging with laser scanners (LiDAR) and photogrammetric systems.  He is currently approaching LIDAR and spectral imagery analysis in a spatial context, developing a contextual analysis approach based on prior knowledge and mapping information. 

During the Spring 2018 semester, Dr. Olsen is on sabbatical from the Naval Postgraduate School, where he is executive director of the Remote Sensing Center and professor of physics. During this sabbatical, he is serving as a visiting scholar with the USC Spatial Sciences Institute. Dr. Olsen’s appointment with the Spatial Sciences Institute marks his return to USC, where he was a Trustee Scholar and received his B.S. in physics. He obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. in physics at UC San Diego; his thesis work and early career focus were in the area of space physics.  After a brief tour in Huntsville, Alabama, he has spent his career at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.
