Charlie Cook, Editor and Publisher of The Cook Political Report, Columnist for the National Journal

Charlie Cook Charlie Cook is Editor and Publisher of the Cook Political Report and a political analyst for National Journal magazine, where he writes a twice weekly column. Charlie is considered one of the nation’s leading authorities on American politics and U.S. elections. In 2010, Charlie was a co-recipient of the American Political Science Association’s prestigious Carey McWilliams award to honor “a major journalistic contribution to our understanding of politics.” For the Spring semester of 2013, Charlie is serving as a Resident Fellow at the Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

The New York Times has called Charlie “one of the best political handicappers in the nation” and has said the Cook Political Report is “a newsletter which both parties regard as authoritative.” The late David Broder wrote in the Washington Post that Charlie was “perhaps the best non-partisan tracker of Congressional races,” while CBS News’ Bob Schieffer called the Cook Political Report, “the bible of the political community.”
