We knew this day would come but it doesn’t make it any easier: Major Garrett is returning to TV. Our colleague and friend is going to be White House Correspondent for CBS News, our television partner, effective Nov. 26.
The good news is that Major remains our colleague as National Journal’s Correspondent at Large. He will write a weekly column for NJ and be a regular at NJ Live events.
Please join me in congratulating the “Mayor of Rivers”- a great reporter and writer, a friend and drinking companion, a class act who stands as a role model for us all.
