Washington (CNN) - The CNN political team welcomed Ron Brownstein as a senior political analyst last week.
The editorial director for National Journal Group will serve as a contributor and provide political perspective to programs network-wide. His first appearance was on CNN's "American Morning."
Washington Bureau Chief and Senior Vice President Sam Feist said, "We're proud that Ron will again be joining CNN to help us cover what's shaping up to be an extraordinary campaign season."
And for Brownstein, the feeling is mutual. "I'm excited to be rejoining a great CNN political team that not only provides comprehensive and insightful coverage of politics from wire to wire, but never loses sight of the fact that campaigns are not a form of entertainment-they are the way we set our direction and settle our differences as a society," he said.
Brownstein is a two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and pens a weekly column for National Journal. He regularly contributes articles for both the National Journal and The Atlantic.
Brownstein is also a contributor with ABC News.
