Welcome to the new Election 2012, a daily stream of everything you need to know in politics leading up to Nov. 6, 2012.

I've moved over from The Fix to anchor each day. Felicia Sonmez has hit the road with newly anointed Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. She, and the rest of the Post campaign team, on the trail and in Washington, will be sending me the latest news on the election. I'll make sure to keep you up on their scoops, plus the best stories from around the web and the conversation as it happens.

The goal: to keep you informed as news breaks or catch you up if you missed it.
