COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of February 14, 2020

New Hampshire Part Two: The highlight was a solid chat with Mark McKinnon of the Showtime special ‘The Circus’ at a Mayor Pete event. It snowed a total of 3 days which was not fun and was nasty cold the entire stay. On voting day, the CNN team was not at the café like 4 years ago which was unfortunate and the new venue was private. So, I went over the coffee shop at the Hilton where all the reporters were staying. I was able to have brief chats with 3 reporters that I knew had been on TV, along with a guy running for Congress. The guy next to me was so impressed with my mission, he bought my lunch.

At noon, I crawled into my car and headed south. Though 2020 was not as successful media-wise as 2016, I still give myself and Don a B Plus. A chunk of what we do is just good or bad timing/luck. My chat with the NYT did generate a published quote a few days later.
