After five years in Missouri, Eli Yokley to cover politics for Roll Call in Washington, D.C.

…Later this month, I’m headed off to Washington D.C. On June 29, I will join Roll Call as a political writer covering U.S. House and Senate campaigns.

When I clock-in at Roll Call, I’ll hit a pause button on the PoliticMo website, but will still always keep my ear to the Missouri-ground for you from Washington. In the coming weeks, I also plan to begin a new column in my hometown paper, the Joplin Globe, updating people back home on the state of affairs in the nation’s capital…

Best wishes. Don’t take any of them inside the beltway cocktail weenie circuit conventional wisdom wooden nickles.
