Here’s WPRB’s exclusive interview with Peter Feldman, Regional Communications Director for the McCain campaign in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It’s set to air this Thursday at 5pm as part of The Dispatch‘s continuing campaign coverage.
In the interview, Feldman addresses the McCain campaign’s efforts to win Pennsylvania, their GOTV efforts, how they see the economy as being issue number one and the youth vote. I also ask Feldman about the reports that the McCain campaign tried to push the Ashley Todd false beating/mutilation story.
To read our coverage of the Todd story and its remarkable similarity to the Francisco Nava affair here at Princeton, read this post from Off the Air, News Director Sebastian Jones’ reported blog.
The Dispatch, WPRB’s weekly news magazine, premieres this Thursday at 5:00pm with coverage of Election 2008. The Dispatch will feature reports on the McCain and Obama campaigns and their efforts in New Jersey, local voters on the candidates and the issues, an exclusive look at robocalls in Pennsylvania and interviews with Professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell of Princeton University, Peter H. Stone of The National Journal and New York Times columnist Frank Rich.
The program will be rebroadcast on Sunday from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
