We Used Texting to Engage Arizona Delegates

At the Republican and Democratic national political conventions, Cronkite students with the Public Insight Network used text messaging to engage delegates from both parties.

They asked questions about whether the GOP was at a crossroads, what it would take to make Arizona a “blue state,” why they became delegates, and other questions.  The Cronkite News audience inspired many of the questions.  This unique approach allowed the audience to see the conventions through the delegates’ eyes.
