CampaignCoverage08 consists of seven students and three teachers from the Cheung Kong School of Journalism at Shantou University in China and five students from the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah. In an unprecedented endeavor, we are embarking on an academic and cultural journey, traversing the United States to cover the 2008 elections.

CampaignCoverage08.org will document our historic undertaking, featuring human-interest stories, election year color, opinion, and hard news as we cover election year ’08 live. From now through the Election Day, join us here, as we travel and live together, learn from each other, and gain new perspectives along the journey from citizens, campaign staffers, party delegates, and the candidates themselves.

Please feel free to navigate through the site to learn about our team, what we plan to accomplish, where we will be traveling, when we will be there, and why we are following the elections. Perhaps we will see you along the way.
