Subject: Welcome Dan Hirschhorn!
Ladies and gentlemen,
I’m extremely excited about Dan Hirschhorn joining The Daily as National Political Correspondent.
Just as the 2012 race kicks into high gear, Dan’s going to bring the same intensity and intelligence he brought to Politico, where he was Deputy 2012 editor and reporter. Before that, Dan ran his own political news site focused on Pennsylvania’s 2010 races. Despite the tough competition, he quickly established Pa2010.com as a must-read source for scoops and analysis.
Dan will be based in New York between trips to Washington and the campaign trail, working closely with Daniel Libit, our National Political Correspondent based in Chicago.
Please join me in welcoming Dan!
