2012 Presidential Campaign Stops
A Washington Post infographic shows where the Obama and Romney campaigns have visited since June.
You can filter by candidate, vice presidential candidate, all four wives, and even see which events were fundraisers. Select a state and the map updates to show you where in it a candidate (or surrogate) visited.
Unless, of course, you’re Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Kentucky, Alaska or Hawaii. Neither campaign seems to like you.
Tech Notes: The map is made with Leaflet, an Open Source JavaScrip library for creating interactive maps, and uses map data from OpenStreetMap, the crowdsourced collaborative mapping project.
