By Chloe Conway | January 19 , 2012

Chuck Todd covers politics for NBC News as its Chief White House Correspondent and the co-host of the show The Daily Rundown. Like many other journalists, he is on the campaign trail, following the Republican presidential nominees as they debate and battle for primary votes.

In this Tips from the Pros interview, Todd describes what it's like on the campaign trail, whether he thinks such long campaigns are a good thing, and how he became a journalist.
