All,

Our esteemed colleague Kasie Hunt is moving on. As some of you may have heard, Kasie is leaving to take a position on the national political team at The Associated Press, where she’ll be one of the two lead political reporters, primarily responsible for covering the 2012 GOP field.

It’s a great opportunity for Kasie, who has distinguished herself in so many ways here. As everyone knows, Kasie produced numerous scoops on the 2010 congressional elections beat and has delivered, time and again, terrific and stylishly written dispatches from the 2012 presidential campaign trail. Whether chasing Sarah Palin’s bus or Jon Huntsman through New Hampshire, Kasie’s work has been smart, compelling and timely.

We’ll miss her talent, but more important we’ll miss her as a wonderful colleague.

Charlie
