I had a fantastic time at the Covering Campaigns conference hosted by Harvard University’s Nieman Foundation and Chicago University’s Institute of Politics. I participated in a panel with a fun group of fellow political money reporters titled “Will Money Buy the Next President?”
The other participants were Bloomberg’s Julie Bykowicz, now at the AP; Andy Kroll, of Mother Jones, who was on his way to start a new job at National Journal, and NPR’s Peter Overby. Niala Boodhoo, of WBEZ Chicago, moderated. To see the event video, watch here.
The whole conference was terrifically interesting and well organized, and it was wonderful seeing Chicago, a city that I love.
