There were Elkhart County angles as well to the GOP and Democratic national conventions

The Republican and Democratic national conventions in July provided plenty of fodder for local coverage — reaction from locals taking part as delegates to what went down in Cleveland and Philadelphia.

With a Bernie Sanders delegate and Hillary Clinton super delegate from Elkhart County, covering the Democrats proved to be more interesting. At least there were a few more sparks than at GOP event, which resulted in the formal nomination of Donald Trump. I spoke with the local delegates by phone (didn’t make it outside the confines of Elkhart County), but it still offered a means to connect locals with national events.

I also served as a talking head on Politically Speaking, a political program on the local PBS station, WNIT, discussing the conventions (look here).

Here are links to two of my articles:
