Stories from the week of February 12, 2016

Flying home from New Hampshire:  TSA agent, “Hey, I saw you on TV.”

Jake Tapper (CNN reporter)  at Fiorina event Tweeted out the  shirt

Rubio event – interviews in all four languages..Spanish newspaper, German TV, French Canadian reporter…good practice for Vienna next month

Product Placement (shirt) on CNN on Tuesday.

24 interviews at the Rubio Super Bowl Party…?Have you seen my  brain? It is around here somewhere…..  As I was leaving, a German TV crew arrived and I did one more interview ‘for the road.’  Completely crazy and exhausting..used all languages again

Don Murphy:  Focused heavily on meeting the candidates which resulted in solid chats with all the R candidates, except Trump and Carson (who was not there).   Kasich said he would not interfere with Colorado.  Walking with Fiorina, their foto together went national, when she dropped out the next day.

Don insisted we stay in the Presidential Suite of the Motel 6….so we paid the extra bucks for that.  The champagne on ice at the end of a long day was a nice touch.

Good Morning: Gov. Christie walked over to our table at the café,  where he was about to appear on CNN.  We had a most excellent chat.  He said he would check with medical experts about his MJ beliefs.  The night before he allowed me to ask my question.  What a way to end the week.

It was a week of weeks. 3 chats with Christie  & Bush, two with Cruz, one with Kasich. 55 or so media interviews = I am headed to South Carolina tomorrow for a week…the eyes of the nation & world are there.
