First Post-Welcome!

The first use of the elephant to represent the Republicans (Thomas Nast, Harper's Weekly)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Each week, I’ll bring you interesting stories from the political trail: looking at all the different candidates, their campaigns, our elected officials, and the stories that you may not always hear on CNN each night. From the time it takes picking the President’s necktie to some of the history behind the Presidency, and, the Presidential image. In addition to my weekly posts, I will highlight some blogs I like.

I have been involved in politics, in one aspect or another, since I was about 5 years old. From volunteering with my grandfather to being on the paid staff of a campaign, I love everything about politics! I’m a junior who, when not in class, works part-time for the Ohio Attorney General’s office. I hope you enjoy my posts!
