"Impression Management, Super PACs, and the 2012 Republican Primary" Symbolic Interaction 39, no. 2 (2016): 175-195.

Analyzes the impression management techniques used by both candidates and candidate-specific Super PACs in political advertisements during the 2012 Republican primary. Finds that while there are some differences, the advertisements follow the same performance patterns and have a complimentary nature to one another.
