Heath Brown: 'What the Candidates Didn't Say'

In his newest essay for The Hill, Professor Heath Brown (GC/John Jay, Criminal Justice) comments on the most recent Republican debate, which he says yielded very little insight into the candidates’ potential advisors. 

“Transition planning occurs secretively until far into the election, offering few opportunities to investigate the details of what each candidate would do once in office,” Brown writes. “This secrecy is unnecessary and potentially harmful if it limits important information that voters could use to evaluate the candidates.”
 
Brown recently published The Tea Party Divided: The Hidden Diversity of a Maturing Movement (Praeger), which examines the party’s evolution.

Read his commentary on the Republican debates in a Mic.com feature story (January 2016).
