Political analyst Matthew Dowd has joined National Journal as a columnist and strategic adviser to the newsgroup.
Dowd’s biweekly column will appear in National Journal magazine and on the new National Journal website launching in October. According to NJ, Dowd “will provide a common-sense perspective on American culture, politics, and government, and will bring an outside-the-Beltway, thought-provoking approach to commentary-dispatches from the heart of America.”
Dowd, a founding partner of communications firm ViaNovo and ABC News political analyst, has written a number of commentary pieces for the New York Times, Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, and Huffington Post. He co-authored the New York Times best-seller Applebee’s America: How Successful Political, Business and Religious Leaders Connect with the New American Community with National Journal Group’s Ron Fournier and Democratic consultant Doug Sosnik.
