Recently I had the opportunity to work with Jonathan Hunley on a political story. He and I go back several years to our days at a community paper in Woodbridge/Manassas (The Potomac News/The News & Messenger, '08-'12). This was our first time in 4 years to get the band back together, so to speak.
In March, Jon and I were munching Tex-Mex at Bar-J in Occoquan when he talked about wanting to do a political profile story on Corey Stewart. Stewart was gearing up for his run for Governor of VA and had a schedule of appearances throughout VA. He also happens to be the Virginia State Chairman, Donald Trump for President.
After a few weeks and several emails pitching the story to various publications, Northern Virginia Magazine said "yes". Pick up the issue, if you have a chance. Jon did a great job putting it together. Jonathan attended a rally in Norfolk, did a sit-down dinner interview, and finally we both attended the Page County GOP Jamboree where Stewart would be, along with every other GOP Gubernatorial candidate.

This all happened in June just a couple weeks before the GOP convention, and it finally ran in this month's Northern VA magazine. I would've loved to see more pictures, of course, but I'm satisfied with putting others up here, and NoVA Mag was very easy and nice to work with, so hopefully I'll get a chance to do something for them again in the future.
