I’d like to end this years primary election 2014 series with a behind the scenes look. This phone was taking at the Brian Schatz headquarters but its very similar at all places. There are news teams (you can see on on the far right) set up at strategic points, tv sets around the rooms with various news coverages, food of varying types and the campaign organizers. The organizers coordinate when the candidate appears and also the media request as well as works with the volunteers. As TV live shots are about to be made they hand out campaign signs and instruct people were to stand during the live interviews. It’s actually fascinating and I’ve found I can learn a lot more about a candidate by seeing who is there to support them and how they and their staffs act whether they win or lose.
