It’s Going To Be A Long Night

No, the primaries aren’t necessarily going to be squeakers. But I will be laboring long into the night regardless of the outcomes.

First, I’m going to Falls Village to report primary results for the Associated Press. After filing the results by phone, waiting for the head moderator’s return and faxing it in to AP in Manhattan, it’s off to Torrington to the headquarters of Republican congressional candidate Andrew Roraback, whose staff will be awaiting the results at Backstage next to the venerable Warner Theatre on Main Street.

I’ll be getting reaction, taking photos and video, then filing a story for CT News Junkie. I’ve also been booked to provide live analysis of the CT05 race as part of WNPR‘s coverage of primary night. I expect to be for 10 minutes or so some where between 9-10 p.m. WNPR’s news director John Dankosky will be broadcasting live with co-host Colin McEnroe at the Red Rock Tavern on Capitol Avenue. Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is expected to make an appearance along with a cast that includes several reporters from the CT Mirror.

In other words, this is backpack journalism. One guy doing everything on my end. It will be a challenge but one that I relish.

Oh, and then I have to get up early, put together tomorrow’s edition of CT Essential Politics and then get to my day job by 8 a.m.

If I didn’t know better, I’d say I’m too old to be doing this.
