Hotline Announces Expansion of State Political Network

From the release:

    The Hotline, National Journal Group’s daily political news and analysis service, announced today the addition of 4 new partners in its recently launched state political network, which now consists of 10 of the nation’s best state political websites. The Hotline Political Network, launched in October of 2006, provides readers with up to the minute state and local news in some of the most politically important states in the country, including the three earliest primary states: Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

    The Network, located on National Journal’s web site, will allow The Hotline’s influential readers to quickly access superior state and local coverage on top of the comprehensive, ground-breaking reporting on national politics they get from The Hotline.

    “The Hotline has been bringing wisdom before it’s conventional to Washington readers for nearly 20 years and now with our ever-expanding Hotline Political Network, we’ll be bringing that same wisdom to every political community in the country, not just Washington, DC,” said Chuck Todd, Editor in Chief of The Hotline.

    The Hotline Political Network’s inaugural members include:

  • Florida’s Sayfie Review
  • Illinois’s Capitol Fax Blog
  • Missouri’s
  • New Hampshire’s News Links
  • Texas’s Quorum Report
  • Wisconsin’s WisPolitics

    And the four new members added today include:

  • Arizona’s AZ Political News
  • Georgia’s Political & Policy Digest
  • Iowa’s IowaPolitics
  • South Carolina’s The Shot

    The Hotline Political Network, located at:, provides readers access to updated headlines from each of the Network member’s sites, as well as links to Hotline’s On Call and Blogometer and other select content from The Hotline, including columns from Chuck Todd, John Mercurio and Charlie Cook.

    News from the Network is also regularly featured on Hotline’s On Call blog, which has established a loyal audience of readers and has been credited with breaking several key political news stories over the past months. On Call was first to report that former-Governor Mark Warner was not running for President, and was again first in reporting then-Senator Bill Frist’s decision not to enter the 2008 race. Last week, On Call was also credited with being the first to report the Democrats’ decision to choose Denver as its 2008 Convention host city. On Call can be found at
