Election Coverage 2014 (In Photos)

This year was a midterm election year and for the first time I had to cover politics for class and work. It was definitely a ride to say the least and I got plenty of photos to illustrate the last couple of months.

Let’s start with the Debates.

On top of doing the debates the TV Station I work for, KNME, did a live broadcast on election night.
