Asma Khalid is a campaign reporter focusing on the intersection of demographics and politics in the 2016 election. Her stories range from exploring how Puerto Rico's fiscal crisis could influence the Florida vote to interviewing the "new millennials" — the Obama-era kids who will be casting their first vote for president in 2016.
Before joining NPR's Election Team, Asma covered politics for Boston's NPR station WBUR.
She's also reported on a number of breaking news stories, including the Boston Marathon bombings and the trial of James "Whitey" Bulger.
Asma got her start in radio through an internship at BBC Newshour in London during grad school. But, she also owes her journalism education to NPR. For a few years after college, she was a producer for NPR's Morning Edition.
