Broadly speaking, Shadow Network is the story of how white conservative 
evangelicals became a core part of the Republican base. In Nelson’s 
telling, that story begins in the 1960s with the New Right, a set of 
political operatives who saw an opportunity to mobilize white 
evangelicals by emphasizing religious and social issues. Using targeted 
political messaging—one of the founders of the New Right, Richard 
Viguerie, was an innovator in direct mail—these political operatives 
turned evangelical devotees into evangelical voters. The New Right used 
these voters first to transform the Republican Party, then the country.
