ABC News

During Summer 2017 I was a Fellow with the Political Unit at ABC News in Washington. I wrote breaking news reports with both speed and accuracy, and worked closely with the digital desk to monitor ongoing stories. In this role I authored more than 25 articles for ABC’s website, ranging from breaking news reporting on the congressional baseball shooting and resignations from the Trump administration to enterprise reporting on voters unregistering after the administration’s data requests.

In addition, I monitored potential candidates for the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential race, attended press conferences on behalf of the network, and performed background research for use on the “Powerhouse Politics” podcast and digital show “The Briefing Room.” I also assisted the Sunday show, This Week, logging and writing articles for ABC’s digital platform about interviews on the show.

Three thousand, three hundred and ninety-four Coloradans have withdrawn their voter registrations as of July 13, following the Trump administration’s request for voter data as part of the Commission on Election Integrity. An additional 182 citizens in the state have filed as confidential voters.
