Meet the Man Behind the 2012 Delegate Count
When the primary races officially end in June, Ohlemacher will have more time to return to his demanding beat on Capitol Hill -- covering social security and tax policy.
The veteran reporter -- he says he's been in the profession since 1990 -- will have a dénouement of sorts as he expects to return in November to the AP's election team to help make the organization's state-by-state projections and ultimately help call the presidential victor on Election Day.
"To be honest with you, it feels like being -- it IS being part of the Democratic process, and, you know, keeping as accurate as possible count of the delegates, that's how you win the nomination, and it does play a significant role," Ohlemacher says and then pauses. "I don't really take myself terribly seriously, but I take the job very seriously."
