State Capture

How Conservative Activists, Big Businesses, and Wealthy Donors Reshaped the American States -- and the Nation

Alex Hertel-Fernandez

  • Provides the first in-depth and accessible history of the rise of cross-state conservative lobbying groups, including the American Legislative Exchange Council, the State Policy Network, and Americans for Prosperity, documenting both their victories and importantly, their missteps, over time
  • Draws on archival evidence, interviews, and original data collection to document why liberals have struggled to build cross-state organizing clout compared to conservatives
  • Spells out the specific policy consequences of conservative cross-state organizing, including its effects on labor market standards, unions, and the Affordable Care Act
  • Sheds new light on the relationship between politicians, activists, donors, and businesses, as well as how businesses shape state policy
