Thrush Heads To Politico

Politico has hired Glenn Thrush away from Newsday.

The internal announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:

Our congressional team, which is rapidly and rightly becoming known as the best in the business under Tim Grieve‘s leadership, is about to get a valuable new addition.

Glenn Thrush is a reporter at Newsday who drew wide notice (including from his competitors here at Politico) for his standout work covering Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.

His work at Newsday showed he can deliver what we want: Aggressive reporting, sophisticated analysis, speed. Our conversations made plain that he understands Politico’s mission and is ready to advance it.

Plus, we like his taste in hats.

In addition to plunging in on the Hill, we expect Glenn to be a vigorous participant in our presidential campaign coverage through the fall.

He starts Aug. 4. It’ll be nice to start reading Glenn’s work and say “I’m glad we had that” instead of “I wish we had that.”

Newsroom sources say Politico plans to hire at least one more big name Capitol Hill reporter before the end of the year. (Jonathan Kaplan?!?)
