Political Reporting in New Hampshire

This is a series of clips from my time in New Hampshire in January 2012, reporting on the primary with the news outlet Democracywise. The site is a project of Charlotte Grimes, my supervisor for the Robin Toner Program, my professor for Political Reporting, and my role model for journalism and in life.

Most of my clips were also published in conjunction with professional, reputable newspapers, Syracuse’s Post-Standard and Rochester’s Democrat & Chronicle. Please see links and descriptions below.

More on New Hampshire

If you’re more interested in hearing about my experience in New Hampshire, professor Chirsty Perry interviewed me for an article appearing on the Newhouse website. She also quotes Grimes:

 “This is real-life experience for students, doing journalism’s most important work – reporting on the electoral process and the people who want to hold elected office.”
