The reporters will interview and remain in touch with residents in the counties as the race progresses, and the stories will appear on NBC News, MSNBC, NBC News Now. There also will be online features with information on the counties and why they were selected.

Todd said that the five counties are in five swing states that are “likely to decide this election.”

Todd, Hillyard and Burns ran through the dynamics in each county in a digital segment of Meet the Press.
