RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Super Tuesday has media outlets across the country churning out non-stop, intense coverage. MSNBC is setting up shop right here in Richmond.

Chris Jansing hosted her show "Jansing & CO." live from the Can Can Brasserie in Carytown on Tuesday morning. The show traveled across seven states in seven days and chose Virginia as its Super Tuesday spot to anchor the live truck.

In the middle of breakfast at the Can Can, Chris Jansing walked across the restaurant as cameras rolled and seamlessly interviewed guests, as if a restaurant wasn’t in full operation behind her.

The MSNBC show corralled several local politicians and pundits, even a local makeup artist, to broadcast from the Carytown hotspot. Governor Terry McAuliffe took his turn, giving support for Hillary Clinton and reiterating how important Virginia is in the election as a swing state.
    
"We are one of the key swing states going into the election," said McAuliffe. "I mean, whatever scenario you look at to get 270 electoral votes, Virginia is going to be at ground center."

People sipped their coffee and watched the political production unfold.

"I took a couple of videos...I'm all primed to go vote now," said Sharon Munz, who often stops by the Can Can for breakfast.

Jansing says this race is like none she's ever covered.

"The volatility of this race has thrown people for a loop," said Jansing. "No one has ever seen a race like this - frankly, on either side - with this anti-establishment fervor."

Chris Jansing will remain in Richmond through Wednesday for coverage.
