I first saw Victoria as a panelist on my favorite television talk show, Up with Chris Hayes on MSNBC.  Her comments on the political landscape were so lucid, informative and mind-opening.  She graciously accepted an invitation to have a conversation with me.


Victoria received her Ph.D. from Duke University and was recently named one of the top 12 scholars in the country by Diverse magazine.  Her research on political behavior has been widely published in scholarly journals and cited in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Time, and POLITICO.   Victoria provides political analysis on both US politics and its global implications.


In addition, Victoria contributes analysis to Univision and CNN en Espanol as well on CNN en Espanol’s election coverage, MSNBC, FoxNews, NPR, and Sirius XM.  She is a regular blogger for POLITICO’S Arena, Huffington Post, and the Daily Grito.


Victoria is the Director of Communications for Latino Decisions and a Senior Fellow at the Bernard Center for Women, Politics, and Public Policy.  She is a visiting scholar at the University of Texas at Austin where she currently resides with her husband, Neftali Garcia.
