After 16 Times journalists covered the epic race for the US presidency, they shared some of their unforgettable experiences. Here is an excerpt from what they wrote for Times Insider.

Young eyes

The night before Super Tuesday in early March, I took my then 7-year-old daughter to East Los Angeles to attend an Elizabeth Warren rally that I covered. For months my daughter had listened to me describe scenes and politics that she didn’t really understand. By then it was clear that Senator Warren, the last woman, would not be able to get the Democratic nomination.

My daughter was mostly in awe of my friends who worked for the television networks as they stood in the stands with their cameras and laptops. The press corps consisted mostly of young women who were extraordinarily generous to a second grader. The night was a moment for her to experience the story and the roles of women in it. – Jennifer Medina

Hard loss

In February, I was at a ballroom in New Hampshire with Andrew Yang, the long-term candidate I had covered for months, when he announced he was dropping out of Democratic Elementary School. You could feel the room drain as soon as he said the words.

Shortly after he left the stage, I met Gene Bishop, an 81-year-old New Hampshire voter, who told me he had never contributed to or promoted any political candidate before he started supporting Mr. Yang. “I just can’t believe it’s over,” said Mr. Bishop, his brave face melting away. Then, to my surprise, he started crying. It’s easy to get angry with politicians. But I stayed with my brief interview with Mr. Bishop. – Matt Stevens
