Missouri Veterans Defy National Voting Trends

Published on Oct. 20, 2016

According to research done by Jonathan Klingler, a professor at Vanderbilt University, veterans are voting more Republican than ever before. For my third team story, we took this research and applied it to the Missouri State Senate Race for District 19. We looked at whether veteran Stephen Weber, the Democratic candidate, would have an impact on the voting trends of Mid-Missouri veterans or if they would follow national trends and decide to vote for District 19 Republican candidate, Caleb Rowden.

For this story we created an instagram account, produced an infographic, wrote a text story  and created a photo gallery of the veterans we interviewed.
