Meet Author of
“Why Veterans Run”
Jeremy Teigen

Tuesday, March 13th at 6:30pm

“Jeremy Teigen has written a timely survey of veterans running for political office in America, starting with the first vet, George Washington. In an era in which fewer Americans serve in the all-volunteer military, the military is one of the few institutions that retains the trust of the American people. Why Veterans Run is an interesting read.”
Karl Rove, Former senior advisor to President George W. Bush, Wall Street Journal columnist, and Fox News contributor

In Why Veterans Run, Jeremy Teigen explains the tendency of parties to elevate those with armed forces experience to run for high office. He describes the veteran candidate phenomenon by examining the related factors and patterns, showing why different eras have more former generals running and why the number of veterans in election cycles varies. With both quantitative and qualitative analysis, Why Veterans Run investigates each postwar era in U.S. electoral history and elaborates why so many veterans run for office. Teigen also reveals how election outcomes with veteran candidates illuminate the relationship between the military and civilian spheres as well as the preferences of the American electorate.
