Our Top Campaign Pix from S. Carolina to Nevada

If you’ve been following us on Twitter or Facebook, here are our favorite photos from the campaign over the past two weeks. In that stretch, we’ve seen the demise, and some would argue, the self-destruction of Jeb! — with his family as collateral damage. (If it’s WMD you seek, look no further than Trump.) The gestures and symbols indicate the campaign is drawing energy from the far right and left (with blacks, hispanics and women, so far, way off the GOP radar). As a warning sign (despite how visible she is), I don’t think Hillary the candidate is making much of a visual impression, hence the steady diet of selfie scenes. And, when it comes to the the political establishment and the Trump show,  for the moment at least, all bets are off.
