Relax y’all! We know you were freaking out about our previous post regarding Governing magazine, wherein we told  you about the hiring of a new publisher, Mark Funkhouser.

“Governing magazine has hired Dr. Mark Funkhouser, the former mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, as publisher. He replaces outgoing publisher Erin Waters, who resigned in February,” we said then.

“But what about Erin Waters?!?!?!?” was undoubtedly your reaction. “Where is she going????”

Well now we know the answer: RealClearPolitics. They announced today that Waters has started at the company in the newly-created position of Director of Product and Business Development in Washington, DC.

“We’re excited to add Erin’s name to the list of top-notch professionals who’ve joined RealClearPolitics recently,” said Tom Bevan, co-founder and Executive Editor of RealClearPolitics. “As we grow our coverage in DC and expand into new verticals, Erin will play a key role in these products and business development.”

We’re sure there’s a better Real Clear + Waters joke in here somewhere, but we can’t put one together right now. Feel free to do so in the comments.
