Bloomberg News has hired Jonathan Allen to cover the White House and Hillary Clinton’s likely presidential bid in 2016. Allen most recently served as Politico’s White House bureau chief. He is also the co-author of the forthcoming book HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.
“Anyone who knows Jon knows his professional enthusiasm is matched only by his personal generosity to friends and colleagues, something we will come to know well in the bureau,” wrote Craig Gordon, Bloomberg News’ deputy managing editor, in a memo obtained by the Huffington Post. “So please join me in welcoming Jon on board.”
Allen will join Bloomberg News in a few weeks.
