Election

A couple days have passed since the election, and no one wants to think about it anymore. So it’s naturally the best time for me to give you a set of the work I did on Tuesday.

This Election Day, the awesome reporter Claire Wiseman and I were tasked with covering Mitt Romney. After not getting credentials for Boston, we decided that the next best plan was to go to the all-important swing state just to our east: Ohio.

We got into Columbus around 9:30am and headed to Romney HQ. After a very short window of being allowed with volunteers, we explored the city, finally winding up at the GOP watch party downtown.
