- A Boston Globe editorial writer worked with the Clinton campaign to give her a “big presence” in coverage during the candidate’s swing through the area amid the Democratic primary. Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s op-ed editor, emailed campaign chair John Podesta to tell him, “It would be good to get it in on Tuesday, when she is in New Hampshire. That would give her a big presence on Tuesday.”
