This capstone was submitted in the Spring of 2019, under the direct supervision of Dr. David Karpf and with additional guidance from Dr. Michelle Kimball and Dr. Ethan Porter. I would like to offer my deepest gratitude to my advisory committee, as well as the entire faculty at the School of Media and Public Affairs (SMPA) at the George Washington University. Their direction has proven invaluable over the course of my education and this thesis would not have been possible without their guidance. For that, and for so much more, I will be forever grateful to the faculty and staff of SMPA. I would also like to acknowledge my interview subjects, who took time to share with me about their work and perspective. And, of course, Brooke, my center. Keywords: political capital, power, legislative effectiveness, Congress, media effects
