Mitt Romney in Florence SC. That’s the amazing Charlie Dharapak from AP on the left and his equally amazing colleague/competitor Jim Young from Reuters on the right. Two of the best political photogs in the business. (Taken with instagram)
The best thing about Iowa Caucus week is that all of my favorite political photographers are on the ground shooting amazing—and hilarious—stuff. Case in point: This photo of Newt Gingrich campaigning at the National Farm Toy Museum in Dyersville, Iowa, by AP’s Charlie Dharapak. Seriously, have you ever seen Gingrich look SO FREAKING EXCITED?! TOY TRACTORS!!
