The Campaign Spot Closes, Moving Over to the Corner . . .

As mentioned in today’s Morning Jolt, The Campaign Spot will stop being updated and you’ll see my blogging over in NRO’s The Corner. We had debated this move for a few years, and it makes sense, particularly with campaign coverage heating up, to bring 2016-related blog posts to the Corner instead of making readers click through twice on a menu to get from Campaign Spot from the NRO home page. You can still find any blog post or article I write at NRO here.

The good folks running the ship here at National Review are also now calling me “senior political correspondent” . . . because that’s what you call a political correspondent who gets old. The Morning Jolt will remain the same, my articles at NRO will remain the same, Three Martini Lunch will remain the same.

The Kerry Spot began back in May 16, 2004. It’s been a spectacular eleven-year run, and not really much of a “goodbye”; similar gig, different office.

See you over there!
