What it is

The Race for Media Attention? is an animated bar chart race depicting media mentions of Democratic presidential candidates during the 2020 presidential election. I made it before animated bar chart races were cool (and then uncool).

Tools used

This project was built with Observable. It was my first Observable notebook, and mostly an attempt to learn. (It was a fork of Mike Bostock's existing bar chart race.)
