We're looking for someone to apply that style to talking points, press releases, blog posts, blast emails, opening statements, and an occasional full-length speech. The boss is on four committees, so we need a policy sponge with a knack for research. Recovering journalists — or Ezra Klein-esque wunderkinds — fit the bill. With a number of in-state events to prepare for each week, in addition to our work in Washington, we're looking for a flexible team player who thrives on a deadline and can produce a ton of copy day in and day out. Sound like you? Submit a resume (preferably yours), a recent writing sample, and a one-page cover letter that convinces us that Twitter is important to American economic competitiveness to SenateWritingJob@gmail.com.
