If my rough count from memory is correct, I've interviewed 41 congressional candidates, some who have run multiple times, over the 12 local congressional races I have covered.
I will be moving from a box seat to the bleachers of congressional politics when I retire from The Post-Star on Friday.
It will seem odd not to peruse campaign finance reports on Oct. 15.
Thanks for all the great excitement over the years.
