I’m Brianna Tucker, a deputy politics editor for The Washington Post. I’ve covered Congress, climate and three election cycles, and I was tuned in to all 15 rounds of Republican House member Kevin McCarthy’s push for the speakership. (Shout-out to C-SPAN.)

This week I was joined by national politics reporter Sabrina Rodriguez. Sabrina chronicles the evolving demographics in battleground states and the ways that candidates, campaigns and interest groups seek to mobilize voter blocs large and small. She recently spent the day with the head of the North Carolina Democratic Party, 25-year-old Anderson Clayton (the youngest state Democratic chair in the country), and covered Latino voting power in Chicago’s mayoral race.
