In every state, there is at least one -- and often many more than one -- great political reporters, the one person that EVERY politico in the state reads.


This is a keyboard. Reporters use it. AP photo.

But, who is that person (or persons) in all 50 states?  We wanted to know -- and we asked the Fix community for help. And, you responded!  After weeks of sorting and such -- done by the incomparable Lindsey CookRachel Weiner  and Wilson Andrews -- we are ready to unveil our 2013 list of the best state-based political reporters in each of the 50 states.  (A reminder: These names are gathered from nominations we received via the blog, Twitter and Facebook.)

Inevitably when conducting a project like this, people get left off.  This is an organic project that is MEANT to be improved on. So, let us have it -- figuratively, not literally -- by offering your own suggestions for who we missed in the comment section.

Thanks to the wonders of technology -- this Internet thing is starting to catch on! -- you can not only sort our list of best political reporters by state but you can also follow them on Twitter using the graphic below. Bookmark it!
