Two changes1To clear up any confusion, the title is a reference to this. are taking place here at ESY.

1) Candidate interviews & district analyses are taking the front seat. I will be conducting interviews with candidates in the most competitive 2020 House Districts — those deemed “Toss Ups” by either Sabato’s Crystal Ball or The Cook Political Report. I am posting transcripts of these interviews rather than writing profiles to give an unfiltered view of the candidates.

2) “Big Picture” analyses will be shorter (~600 words or less), more frequent and rawer. If you want beautiful, extended pros, there is always The New Yorker.

Thanks for reading and send me an email ( or reach me on Twitter (@skmoskowitz) with questions, comments, suggestions, interview requests, etc.
