Jeffrey Vanke, of Roanoke, Virginia, is a writer, a historian, a non-profit budget consultant, and a centrist political activist. He ran in 2010 for the United States House of Representatives to represent Virginia's 6th congressional district, but lost to incumbent Bob Goodlatte.
Vanke earned his Ph.D. in history from Harvard University in 1999; he is an expert on political psychology. In his book on European Union history, Vanke presents a unified theory and formula of politics: , or "the polity is the product of political forces and of the political, economic, and social systems" (Europeanism and European Union: Interests, Emotions, and Systemic Integration in the early European Economic Community, Academica Press, 2010). In early 2010, Vanke published a detailed balanced Federal budget spreadsheet which informed the Bowles-Simpson report. Vanke is a member of the Modern Whig Party.
