Here is the package of coverage that will be presented from Monday through Saturday leading up to Super Tuesday:

*In a follow-up to “Chasing the Presidential Nominee,” published online Sunday, Adam Nagourney and Michael Barbaro delved into the mounting pressure on House Republicans to work more closely with the White House on government reform.


In a preview to the Times’ ongoing series of profiles of New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie, columnist Andrew Rosenthal wrote Monday that the governor “is competing against the idea that he’s too damn nasty for the GOP,” and predicts that no one will overcome the “irrelevance of the capital race.”


The final installment of “Where’s the Money?” published Sunday by C.J. Chivers, Stephen Farrell and Stephanie Saul examined the “massive influx of shadowy spending” on U.S. elections, and was followed up Monday by a report that discusses how future executive branch appointments may operate under the new administration.

The text of the Monday column “Trump Gets Chances” by Michael D. Shear and Alison Snyder was shared by editors Monday.
