You were once the political director at WMUR in New Hampshire. How have you seen the media’s presence in the New Hampshire primary change?
The number of media has exploded. Exponential. Now, in addition to all the cameras, there are people working off iPhones and blogging. There’s very little time for anything that isn’t on the record. In 1995, Lamar Alexander walked across New Hampshire by himself in a red, flannel shirt. He sat in people’s living rooms. And almost no one noticed. Of course, he didn’t win.
How big is your entourage in New Hampshire?
My intrepid and fantastic producer, Sarah Courtney. And camera and audio people who have worked with me since 1996. They’re great. They’re not my entourage. We’re a team.
What do you find yourself eating in New Hampshire? Lots of diner food, as you follow campaigns to greasy spoons?
My briefcase is filled with PowerBars. My preference is Harvest, particularly oatmeal raisin. I also carry power drinks – caffeinated and non-caffeinated – as well as Mucinex, my laptop, chargers for seven to fifteen devices, and make-up (because I’m on TV).
