Over the course of the last year we covered a number of government and political events in Missouri (and elsewhere), in the process taking thousands of photographs. Most of them didn’t make it into the blog. Some of the things we saw and heard made us smile, made us think, made us gasp, made us hope, and made us despair. We thought we’d provide a retrospective of some of the pictures and stories we consider to be memorable.

We took our annual road trip to the Harkin Steak Fry in Indianola, Iowa on September 15, 2013:

Vice President Joe Biden, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, and Senator Tom Harkin in Indianola, Iowa (September 15, 2013).

And less than a week later, in Kansas City:

President Obama at the Ford Stamping Plant in Liberty, Missouri (September 20, 2013).

We took close to two thousand images at each event.
