Check out Sunlight's map of Republican-fests in Tampa, powered by Political Party Time!

Story
Tagline
I'm a journalist in Washington, DC
Introduction
Went to a Catholic high school that no longer exists in a city whose nickname is obsolete (hardly any steel mills left in the former Steel City). Two-time member of the Dead Newspaper Society. Can't stop thinking about tomorrow because someone keeps erasing my past. Ain't that America, after all?
