Robert Stacy McCain was invaluable in following the NY-23 race. McCain travelled to the district and spent time there both before and on election day.
When not evading the state highway police while racing from location to location, stealing Wifi signals for his posts, and pinching a free buffet breakfast here and there, McCain managed to file reports with real local color and feel.
I am sorry for comparing him to a carnival barker, due to his frequent requests for people to hit his tip jar. I wasn’t wrong, but I am sorry.
