Wayne Thorburn, author of Red State: An Insider’s Story of How the G.O.P. Came to Dominate Texas Politics
Wayne Thorburn, who holds a PhD in political science, brings a lifetime of political involvement to the task of tracing the transformation of Texas politics since 1960. When Texas elected its first Republican governor in 104 years, he was executive director of the state party. Thorburn was involved in the election of the President George H. W. Bush and then directed the coordinated campaign that in 1996 elected all statewide Republican candidates for the first time.
