It’s Still Cold Out, But Politics Is Getting Hotter
After returning from the frozen tundra of Des Moines after the Iowa Caucus in early February, I was finally able to spend more than a week in Washington to do my laundry and get back in the swing of things on the hill.
Nowadays I’m on the road about half the time working on stories ranging from congressional redistricting to Senate and House races. It’s a blast being able to visit unique places and small towns where the locals call their elected officials by their first names.
Of course, there’s no way to hide the fact that the presidential race is dominating the news left and right. I’ve been on and off the campaign trail in North Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin as the race begins to narrow to five serious candidates.
Campaigns are becoming stronger, more organized, and the access is beginning to get tougher for the media, especially photographers.
Below are a few fun frames I’ve made in the past weeks. I’m excited for the weather to get nicer and to head back out on the trail. Enjoy! -Drago
