'The 12,' College Journalists To Chronicle 2012 Election On Tumblr
from The Washington Post
It's all but certain that a handful of states will determine whether President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney will get to 270 electoral votes Nov. 6. And within those states, a few recurring narratives will dominate headlines: Economic recovery in Michigan. Immigration laws in Arizona. Union battles in Wisconsin. Northern Virginia (blue), and the rest of Virginia (not so blue). The Washington Post has launched The 12, aimed at keeping track of campaign issues across swing states. The site is powered by Tumblr and will be populated by student journalists at 12 universities in some of the most competitive 2012 election states.
