As National Journal’s lobbying correspondent, Chris Frates covers the intersection of money, politics, and policy inhabited by Washington’s influence class. Prior to joining National Journal, he worked for Politico where he founded and authored “Politico Influence,” a daily intelligence and analysis email chronicling Washington’s lobbyists and message makers. He also covered healthcare reform for Politico, regularly breaking news and driving the conversation on that all-consuming debate. Mr. Frates also founded and wrote Politico Pulse, the organization’s daily health reform briefing that quickly became a must-read crib sheet in Washington.

Before coming to Washington, Mr. Frates covered the Colorado legislature and politics for The Denver Post and was part of a team whose work was recognized as a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news. He has covered three statehouses and numerous local, state, and national campaigns, and his political analysis has been featured on the CBS Evening News, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, WTOP, and many other national and local television and radio programs. Of all the important people he has interviewed, Mr. Frates still counts Mister Rogers among his favorites.
