Washington, D.C. Correspondent
MinnPost is seeking a Washington correspondent.

As our D.C.-based reporter, your primary responsibility will be to keep tabs on Minnesota’s 10-member congressional delegation and other Minnesotans making news in the capital, along with assessing the impact of administration and congressional action on Minnesota.

We offer our reporters a high level of freedom, and expect a high level of responsibility: You should be comfortable doing 2-3 stories each week along with the occasional deep-dives on issues of interest to Minnesotans. You will also be responsible for writing a weekly newsletter, the D.C. Memo, summarizing and analyzing the big stories out of Washington. An intimate knowledge of Minnesota is not required, though a willingness to learn about the state’s unique political culture certainly is. Candidates should be able to work independently and have a proven ability to write compellingly about politics and policy for an engaged audience.
