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.
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 Cook, Rachel 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!
