THE HILL TO DIE ON
The blue wave that swept through Washington in November and returned control of the House to Democrats was by no means ordained; it was the result of both a massive effort by the left and the failure of President Trump to heed warnings from his own party that its candidates were in grave danger. The Hill to Die On is the inside story of Trump’s first two years, viewed from Capitol Hill, where lawmakers on both sides of the aisle jockeyed for advantage as American politics reached a fever pitch.
Join us for a launch event for The Hill to Die On by Politico Playbook's Anna Palmer & Jake Sherman. They will be in conversation with Maggie Haberman of The New York Times.
Anna covers the world of Congress and politics, and has successfully chronicled the business of Washington insiders for years. Her stories take readers behind the scenes for the biggest fights in Washington as well as the 2016 election.
Prior to becoming POLITICO’s senior Washington correspondent, Anna was the co-author of the daily newsletter, POLITICO Influence, considered a must-read on K Street.
Anna previously covered House leadership and lobbying as a staff writer for Roll Call. She got her start in Washington journalism as a lobbying business reporter for the industry newsletter Influence. She has also worked at Legal Times, where she covered the intersection of money and politics for the legal and lobbying industry, first as a staff writer and then as an editor.
A native of North Dakota, Anna is a graduate of St. Olaf College, where she was executive editor
Jake is the top congressional reporter on Capitol Hill and has built a career on landing hard-to-get scoops.
Since 2009, Jake has chronicled all of the major legislative battles on Capitol Hill, and has also traveled the country to cover the battle for control of Congress.
Jake takes readers inside the rooms where decisions are made. His high-impact reporting resulted in the resignation of Aaron Schock.
Before landing at POLITICO, Jake worked in the Washington bureaus of The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He also interned on the metro desk of The Journal News (N.Y.) and, during high school, worked on the sports desk of the Stamford Advocate (Conn.).
Jake is a Connecticut native, and a graduate of The George Washington University — where he edited The GW Hatchet — and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. Jake lives in Washington with his wife Irene, and listens to an unhealthy amount of Grateful Dead and Phish.
Before joining The Times as a campaign correspondent, Ms. Haberman worked as a political reporter at Politico, from 2010 to 2015. She previously worked at other publications, including The New York Post and The New York Daily News.
She was a finalist for the Mirror Awards, with Glenn Thrush, for the 2014 profile "What Is Hillary Clinton Afraid Of?"
Her hobbies include singing, and she is married with three children.
