Jake Tapper Is Ready for a Good Night’s Sleep

TVNewser caught up with ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper Tuesday afternoon in Chicago.

Tapper, who was in the Windy City four years ago covering Pres. Obama’s first election, was back again covering the re-election. It wasn’t clear that Obama would win until around 11pm, a change from ’08 when Tapper says, “We had a pretty good idea that Obama was going to have a good night, you could feel the momentum.” Tapper also says covering the campaigns this time around was “more of a grind.”

And now that it’s all over, he’s looking forward to a good night’s sleep, which probably won’t come tonight.
