The whole nation could not take their eyes away from the race for Delaware Senator between Chris Coons and Christine O’Donell, mainly because O’Donell created such a fascinating character of herself. All of a sudden, everyone cared about the little state of Delaware and what experts from the state thought of the senate race. UD Communication Department’s very own Lindsay Hoffman was featured on WHYY Radio to weigh in on the election on November 3, the day after Coons defeated O’Donell as Delaware Senator.
Hoffman joined the Communication Department in 2007 after receiving a Ph.D from Ohio State University. Her research mainly focuses on media effects of public opinion and health arenas, processes of public opinion and political campaigns.
