Incumbency and Super PACs

The role of incumbency as a key factor determining American electoral success is well documented. However Super PACs may be impacting on this too.

The group Campaign for Primary Accountability- has $1.9 million to spend and secured success in Super Tuesday by backing Iraq veternan Brad Wenstrup over incumbent Jeab Schmidt (R).

This anti- incumbency policy fits in with the general anti- politics mood that has already brought us the Occupy movement and the Tea Party.
