While it was an incredibly exhausting week, with over 80 hours worked and 2500 miles driven, it was incredibly rewarding to follow Rick Santorum from an underdog to a winner.
I had another interesting day on the Santorum campaign today. Who would have expected one of the perspective voters would ask him about the death of his son.
I started off the day thinking that I might visit South Dakota for the first time as Santorum’s schedule took me very close to that part of the world. Instead, I made another first. During an event in Sioux Falls I ended up so close to the presidential candidate that I had to turn my head not to breath on him as he waited for his introduction. It all started when I began moving through the over stuffed coffee shop as he began to work the room and it ended when we were stuck with no where left to go. Having a dozen cameras pointed on my was a big departure from the norm.
I didn’t get a chance to update my blog last night for obvious reasons. I did 4 back-to-back campaign stops yesterday with Rick Santorum.
Today was my first day on the Rick Santorum campaign. It was really refreshing shooting a candidate who didn’t mind being on camera with a beer.
