Roll Call Hires Alex Roarty As Chief Political Correspondent

Washington (Jan. 29) – CQ Roll Call, an Economist Group business, today announced that Alex Roarty will join the Roll Call newspaper as senior political writer.

“Alex is a great addition to Roll Call, and he’ll be on the road frequently,” Roll Call editor-in-chief Melinda Henneberger said. “He will add to our must-read coverage of the political campaign in 2016.”

Roarty worked for five years at National Journal, where he last served as the chief political correspondent for The Hotline. There, he covered everything from the presidential race to House, Senate, and gubernatorial contests for NJ’s website and magazine.

Previously, he was editor of the Harrisburg-based PoliticsPA.com and Capitol bureau chief for Pennsylvania Legislative Services. He was born in Louisiana, grew up in Texas, and went to college in Pennsylvania.

He joins previously announced Roll Call columnists – Jon Allen, Matt Lewis, Patricia Murphy, Leslie Sanchez and Walter Shapiro – along with new political editor Mary C. Curtis, congressional editor Phyllis Jordan, audience development director Andrew Breiner, and reporters Rema Rahman, Stephanie Akin and Eric Garcia.
