Dave Weigel is returning to The Washington Post as a national politics reporter. He most recently worked for Bloomberg Politics. Prior to that, Weigel worked for Slate and previously, WaPo.
“Dave will bring his one-of-a-kind perspective and voice to our campaign team, where he will focus on the people and movements that are galvanizing so much of modern politics,” wrote national editor Cameron Barr; deputy national editor Scott Wilson; associate editor Anne Kornblut; and senior politics editor Steven Ginsberg, in a memo.
Weigel’s new role at WaPo will also include a new podcast on politics. He’ll also focus on Rand Paul‘s quest for the White House.
Weigel joins WaPo July 20.
