California primary election night

On primary election night 2018, I was sent to the joint candidate party for two progressives running for sheriff and district attorney. Much of the two stories about the races were pre-written, but the Sacramento Bee needed reactions from the candidates and their supporters. I interviewed both candidates several times throughout the night, and got a quick reaction from the DA candidate on video after his opponent declared victory. I sent my feed from the watch party back to the newsroom on a tight deadline, and my writing made it into both articles (I got contributing bylines).
