520    "Do members of Congress follow through on the appeals they
       make in campaigns? The answer to this question lies at the
       heart of assessments of democratic legitimacy. This study 
       demonstrates that, contrary to the conventional wisdom 
       that candidates appeals are just cheap talk, campaigns 
       actually have a lasting legacy in the content of 
       representatives and senators behavior in office. 
       Legislators face clear incentives to offer sincere claims 
       in their campaigns, so their appeals often serve as good 
       signals about the issues they will pursue in Congress. 
       Levels of promise-keeping vary in a systematic fashion 
       across legislators, across types of activity, across time,
       and across chamber. Moreover, legislators, responsiveness 
       to their appeals shapes their future electoral fortunes 
       and career choices, and their activity on their campaign 
       themes leaves a tangible trace in public policy outputs. 
       Understanding the dynamics of promise-keeping thus has 
       important implications for our evaluations of the quality 
       of campaigns and the strength of representation in the 
       United States"--|cProvided by publisher.
