Steve Jarding has spent most of the past twenty-five years studying, teaching, writing, analyzing, and working in American politics and has become arguably the most sought-after expert on southern and rural politics in America today. In races and organizations -- including Tom Daschle's first U.S. Senate win in South Dakota in 1986, Bob Kerrey's two U.S. Senate wins in Nebraska in 1988 and 1994, Mark Warner's upset bid to become Virginia's governor in 2001, three years as senior adviser to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and as executive director of Senator John Edwards's record-shattering leadership PAC -- Jarding has established himself as a "hands-on" tactician who knows how to win. He teaches at Harvard University.
