WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Long-time Washington policy leader Ginni Thomas, the founder of the group Liberty Central, has agreed to join The Daily Caller.
Thomas is The Daily Caller’s fourth major hire in recent weeks. In February, The Daily Caller hired Newsweek blogger Mickey Kaus, National Journal reporter Neil Munro and AOL Politics Daily writer and reporter Matt Lewis.
As The Daily Caller’s special correspondent, Thomas will interview key political and community leaders -- from high-profile politicians to grassroots activists -- with a focus on listening to those outside the Beltway.
Thomas draws on a wide range of experiences. She’s worked in the public sector, the private sector, and the non-profit sector. Before founding Liberty Central, Thomas opened Hillsdale College’s Washington office and was with The Heritage Foundation for nearly 10 years as a director of government relations and senior fellow. Prior to that, she worked for years as a high-level Congressional aide.
"We are thrilled to have Ginni Thomas join The Daily Caller as a special correspondent to interview both established and emerging leaders about the serious questions facing our country," said Neil Patel, publisher and CEO of The Daily Caller. "Ginni is always upbeat, she has an unbelievable amount of energy and enthusiasm and she knows our political system as well as anyone in Washington. We could not imagine a better person to take on this role."
Asked for comment on her move to The Daily Caller, Thomas said, “It is a privilege to join such a fast-growing platform with a capable, fun-loving team who are filling a niche that the dinosaur media has underserved.”
