Announcement from National Editor Steven Ginsberg, Deputy National Editor Lori Montgomery and White House Editor Dan Eggen:

We are excited to announce that Josh Dawsey is joining our White House team.

Josh joins us from Politico, where he has covered the White House for the past year. On a crowded, competitive beat, Josh has delivered one scoop after another, writing extensively about the inner workings of the Trump administration while also breaking news on policy decisions, legislation, and developments in the Russia investigation.

Josh previously worked for the Wall Street Journal in New York, where he covered Gov. Chris Christie and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, among other beats. While covering City Hall, Josh broke news on a number of state and federal investigations into the mayor while writing detailed looks at his management style and policy shortcomings and successes. He also contributed to major breaking news stories, including the Boston Marathon bombing, the Sandy Hook shooting, Superstorm Sandy and the Charleston church shooting.

Josh is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, a proud native southerner and a cigar aficionado. He starts on Nov. 27. Please join us in welcoming him.
