“Mishak’s appointment to this new position marks a critical expansion of the AP’s national political reporting team,” said Liz Sidoti, AP’s political editor based in Washington. “It will help ensure that the AP fulfills its mission to provide competitive, comprehensive and clear campaign coverage during the upcoming 2014 and 2016 contests while also chronicling changes in the public’s attitudes and behavior.”

Associated Press Names New Political Editor

The Associated Press has promoted Liz Sidoti from Chief Political Writer to Political Editor. Sidoti has covered national politics for the AP since 2003. In her new role she’ll lead a Washington-based team of political writers and oversee AP journalists that are positioned in every state’s capital.

Sally Buzbee, the AP’s Washington Bureau Chief, says that Sidoti’s experience will serve her well:

Liz’s career is steeped in AP’s rich tradition of being first with political news; she’s a ferocious competitor. Even more remarkable is her ability to push and improve the work of those around her. She is a model for how journalists can cut through the political noise and fit the pieces together to explain what is happening in politics and why it matters to people beyond the nation’s capital.
