Elevator Pitch | New Hampshire Public Radio

Elevator Pitch

Senator Michael Bennet, a Democratic presidential hopeful, appeared on The Exchange Candidate Forum on Jan. 13. Ahead of that hour-long interview, NHPR asked him on the way up to the studio for his elevator pitch - while actually riding in the elevator - on why voters should cast a ballot for him.

Democratic presidential hopeful Cory Booker outlined his national priorities over an hour-long interview on The Exchange Candidate Forum today. On the way to the NHPR studios, he was asked to give his elevator pitch, while actually in the elevator, on why Granite Staters should vote for him in the New Hampshire presidential primary.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld outlined campaign priorities this week in The Exchange Candidate Forum. Before the main event, NHPR joined him in the building's lobby to continue our "Elevator Pitch" video series. 

The Republican presidential hopeful responded to NHPR's Lauren Chooljian during the forum that he's less of a long shot every day. On the way in, as the elevator door closed, we asked him to make his best pitch to New Hampshire voters for why he deserves their support.

Watch Weld's pitch to New Hampshire voters:

En route to a recent candidate forum with NHPR's The Exchange, Congresswoman Annie Kuster took a few moments on the elevator ride up to make the case for why voters should consider sending her back to represent New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District.

  We caught up with Sen. Kelly Ayotte on her way into NHPR's studios to ask her to give her best elevator pitch for why voters should consider sending her back to the Senate.

  Last week, you heard Rep. Frank Guinta offer his best elevator pitch on why voters should send him back to Congress. This week, we caught up with his Democratic challenger, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, to get her pitch for why voters should send her back to Congress – again.

You might've caught our hour-long interview with Congressman Frank Guinta, the Republican incumbent running to hold onto his seat in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District.

Before Guinta joined The Exchange in NHPR's studios, we caught up with him on the way up to our sixth-floor newsroom to get his pitch for why — in his view — voters should get behind his campaign.

Republican Congressional candidate Jim Lawrence stopped by NHPR Monday for an hourlong conversation with The Exchange, as part of our ongoing series of Conversations with the Candidates.

But before he sat down for that interview, we asked Lawrence to give his best elevator pitch — literally, in our building's elevators — to voters on why they should send him to Congress.

Last year, we started asking the presidential candidates who stopped by NHPR's offices to deliver their best "elevator pitches" on the way into our studios. Now that we're heading into the final stretch of the election season, we're reviving this feature — this time, with the candidates for statewide office.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the latest presidential hopeful to stop by the NHPR offices in Concord for a candidate forum with The Exchange.

After she had a few moments to mingle with a small crowd at the building's entrance, Clinton — accompanied by a few staffers and Secret Service personnel — offered her best "elevator pitch" explaining why she's qualified to be president. 

This isn't the first time Carly Fiorina's had to deliver an "elevator pitch" — though, as far as she can recall, this was the first time she's had to give that pitch in an actual elevator.

On his latest swing through New Hampshire, Democratic presidential hopeful Martin O'Malley stopped by NHPR's offices in Concord for a conversation with The Exchange

We caught up with O'Malley — a former mayor of Baltimore and governor of Maryland — on his way up to the studios to ask for his (literal) elevator pitch pitch on why he should be president.

Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate, stopped by New Hampshire Public Radio's offices in Concord Friday morning for a conversation with The Exchange

On the way up, Sanders offered a quick "elevator pitch" for why he thinks he should be president — and took a moment to mingle with a (very) young potential constituent.

  John Kasich, the Ohio governor and Republican presidential hopeful, stopped by NHPR's offices in Concord recently for an interview with The Exchange.

On the way up to the studio,  we caught up with Kasich (and a few new friends) — asking him, specifically, for a quick pitch on why he should be president. Here's what he had to say.
