The April issue of Politics will be on newsstands and in mailboxes soon. The table of contents and a few stories—including my look at how the recession has affected fundraisers, an investigation into how campaign operatives deal with being out of a job in the recession, and an interview with Obama campaign manager Steve Hildebrand—are online already.

Watch the site (or get your hands on a copy of the magazine!) for a look at Shane's cover story on how overseas campaigns have adapted campaign tools from Obama's victory, as well as a look at consultants who have run for office and a case study on how one firm turned North Carolina blue.

It's a great issue—so if you're not already a subscriber, be sure to sign up.
