The Race for the White House in 2016: The New Hampshire Primary and Beyond

Akilah Johnson, Annie Linskey, Jim O’Sullivan, James Pindell, Matthew Viser, and moderator Shira T. Center

Political reporters from The Boston Globewill discuss one of the most unpredictable presidential races in a generation. Just days before Iowa and New Hampshire voters make their picks for the presidential nominees, top political journalists from the Pulitzer-prize winning news organization will convene for a panel on the campaigns they have been covering for the last year. Who will win the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary? Will the victors be the eventual nominees? And how will this influence who wins the White House in 2016?

Scheduled panelists from The Boston Globeinclude James Pindell (@JamesPindell), reporter covering New Hampshire politics for 13 years; Akilah Johnson (@akjohnson1922), "Off the Beat" columnist and reporter covering the New Hampshire primary; Annie Linskey (@AnnieLinskey), national political reporter covering 2016; Jim O’Sullivan (@JOSreports), political reporter for The Boston Globe;and Matthew Viser (@mviser), a reporter in the Washington bureau, covering the White House and national politics. Shira T. Center (@shiracenter), political editor for The Boston Globe,will moderate the discussion.
