James Pindell followed his passion of politics by reporting on it in five states, two of those being the early presidential states of Iowa and New Hampshire. The Washington Post calls him the "Insider's Insider" for his coverage of New Hampshire politics and the state's first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
Prior to joining the Globe, he ran PoliticsNH.com, a New Hampshire political news website for four years. He also writes a monthly column for Campaigns and Elections Magazine and is an adjunct professor at New England College in Henniker, N.H.
He also provides political analysis for New Hampshire television and radio stations on a regular basis.
Before New Hampshire he covered the Iowa Caucuses for the Des Moines Register and was the statehouse bureau chief of the Morgantown (W.Va.) Dominion Post.
He is a graduate of both Drake University in Des Moines and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City.
