Eliza Newlin Carney to Join The American Prospect

Eliza Newlin Carney joins The American Prospect as a senior editor on November 9. Carney joins the Prospect from a post as a senior writer and columnist for CQ Roll Call, where she covers lobbying, influence and political money.

Before joining CQ Roll Call in 2011, Carney worked at National Journal, where she also wrote a column and focused on money and influence. She is best known for coining the term "super PAC," and brings broad editorial experience in magazines, breaking news, blogging and commentary to the post.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Prospect and its talented staff,” said Carney. “This is a key moment for the progressive movement, and the Prospect is uniquely positioned to inform it.”
