Jamieson Breaks Down the N.Y. Governor's Race

Professor Kathleen Hall Jamieson was interviewed for an Associated Press story about the campaign for governor of New York between Democrat Andrew Cuomo and Republican Carl Paladino. Referring to the lack of depth in the campaign and the large amount of negative attack advertisements, Professor Jamieson said "The irony around the country is — it's not just New York — we have an extraordinarily consequential election. The consultants are going to say, 'You put up your positive alternatives to this and you're going to lose.'"
