Seating Chart

More reporters than you could possibly believe are stacked into an auditorium at Saint Anselm college, safely far from tonight’s debate.

At the front of the room is a row reserved for photographers. In the second row, news agencies AFP and AP and Reuters share space with USA Today, as well as local heroes from the Keene Sentinel, the Concord Monitor, and the Eagle Tribune.

One thing in the second row is not like the others: Politico. (Behind Politico in row three are the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times; the New York Post and the New York Daily News are in row five. We are back in general seating, third row from the back. Also: Sandwiches have been laid out.)
