I worked closely with Josh Blank, the project’s Manager of Polling and Research, tackling a new chapter together every two weeks. After reading the current chapter, I would research questions that arose during reading, then outline a proposal for a new chapter, which Josh and I would revise and agree on before I was turned loose to tweak old text and add new where necessary. A fast-paced, constantly-changing project where I was constantly on my toes and humbled to be supporting the Texas politics experts.
