No one blazed a trail through American politics quite like Donald Trump, and no one was better equipped to track it than Stump Connolly. In columns going back to 2012, Connolly reports on Trump’s triumphs and tragedies in all their grandiose absurdity ...
How many political reporters can say that? Stump’s been gassed at the ’68 Democratic convention in Chicago, hung with Hunter Thompson in Wisconsin in ’72, spent the ’92 convention in New York inside Clinton’s command and control trailer and pioneered internet political coverage in 1996 in STUMP, A Campaign Journal ...
Keeping up with the man who changed everything turns into a full-time job for Stump Connolly. In 43 columns and 55 photos, memes and tweets, he follows the arc of Donald Trump’s political career from 2012 when he received the Statesman of the Year award from the Sarasota Republican Party to a final flurry of columns about his desperate attempts to stay in office.
Stump Connolly is at it again, careening down the campaign trail in pursuit of the candidates, the cash and the real stories behind Campaign '08. Read his first-hand reports from New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio, see how he sneaks into the Republican and Democratic conventions, and join him for Barack Obama's triumphant Election Night rally in Chicago.
Before there were bloggers, before there even was an Internet, there was Stump Connolly, chief political correspondent of The Week Behind. His freewheeling coverage of the 2004 presidential race informed, delighted and confounded his fans. Follow along with Stump as he follows the candidates, and the mysterious Buckman follows him, from Howard Dean’s scream in Iowa to the Democratic convention in Boston, the presidential debate in Arizona and George Bush’s narrow victory.
He was one of the first political commentators on the Internet, xeroxing his weekly columns to hand out to friends and emailing copies to fellow reporters on the campaign trail. He was also one of the first to sound the alarm about the growing influence of money in politics, television as the new precinct captains, and other alarming changes in our democracy.
Three remarkable documentaries on the 1992 campaign produced for The 90’s Election Specials on PBS.The Primary captures Bill Clinton on the campaign trail in Illinois. Convention gives us a unique look at the Democratic Convention in New York from inside Clinton’s command and control trailer, and It’s Debatable follows the candidate as he preps for the final presidential debate.
