Last week, we asked our readers to share their photos about the economy ahead of the last week’s Republican presidential debate. We got nearly 180 submissions, many of which we featured on The Fix.

The Washington Post team, many of whom were Instagram novices, also contributed behind-the-scenes photos from their coverage of the debate. Since then, they have added even more photos from time on the campaign trail, such as the one below.
