John McCormack Joins National Review as Washington Correspondent

I’m thrilled to welcome John McCormack as our new Washington Correspondent, and as a Fellow at the National Review Institute. John is a terrific reporter whom we have admired for years — he actually got his start in journalism as an intern at National Review in D.C. — and he will be filling a crucial role here covering politics in the nation’s capital and across the country.

John comes to us from The Weekly Standard, where he made a name for himself as a tenacious and insightful writer across a remarkable number of topics. As an NRI fellow, he’ll join K-Lo, Ramesh, and others in covering the pro-life cause, and participating in forums around America. Welcome, John!
