The 2016 United States presidential election is constitutionally prescribed to occur on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. It will be the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. The series of presidential primary elections and caucuses that took place between February 1 and June 14, 2016, staggered among the 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories.
All the major events and issues during this period have been successfully reported by CNN’s political reporter Eric Bradner. Bradner has reported statewide campaigns, Capitol Hill and breaking news stories for the network. He also writes CNN Politics' nightly newsletter Nightcap.
Previously, Bradner used to cover international trade. His coverage included President Barack Obama's efforts to negotiate massive new deals with the Asia-Pacific and the European Union at POLITICO. His vast knowledge of politics was a result of tracking Mitch Daniels and Mike Pence as the Indiana Statehouse bureau chief for the Evansville Courier & Press. His four-year stint in Indianapolis included many of his career highlights. He reported on fights over labor rights and education reforms, as well as several House and Senate campaigns. He has even had experience with Super Bowl XLVI.
This skilled journalist first acquired practice by covering a triple-murder and the nationwide manhunt. It ensued in an internship with the Courier & Press. Later in Jacksonville, he covered cops and courts and wrote about ex-felons' voting rights during a summer at The Florida Times-Union.
With his handsome salary and earning from the various networks, he has worked with throughout his career, Bradner has several properties to his name and is estimated to have a net worth of $1 million.
Bradner was born in Louisville, Ky. and grew up in the nearby Southern Indiana town of Greenville. He now lives in the Washington, D.C. area, but maintains his extreme Louisville basketball allegiance.
