Craig Crawford, one of today’s most exciting political analysts, is well known for his thought provoking blog on a wide range of national issues, his lively discussions with Imus in the Morning, and his regular appearances on television as a political commentator. The Washington Post called Craig “one of the capital's most celebrated journalists.”

Craig is a frequent, and well-received lecturer throughout the country, speaking to a broad spectrum of groups. He travels from Washington, DC, and his topics include: politics, the media, current events, presidents, political campaigns, and other Washington areas of interest.

Craig Crawford is a veteran Washington journalist. He is currently taking time off from journalism, and is working as the communications director for Jim Webb for President. He has covered the nation’s capital since 1989 for a variety of publications and broadcasters, including Congressional Quarterly, Roll Call, National Journal, The Hotline, The Orlando Sentinel, CBS News, MSNBC and “Imus in the Morning” on Fox Business. His writings appear regularly in newspapers and web sites throughout the country, and his blog features a large community of active and lively participants in its comments sections. He is often featured on a variety of national television and radio programs.

Before joining Congressional Quarterly in 2003, Crawford was Editor-in-Chief of The Hotline, an online news digest that is an institution inside the Beltway and out. Prior to running The Hotline, Crawford was The Orlando Sentinel’s Washington Bureau Chief and had been working for the newspaper since 1985 covering legal issues, politics and presidential campaigns.
Crawford practiced law in Florida, specializing in products liability, before becoming a journalist. He also once ran unsuccessfully for a state legislative seat in Orlando (1982), and worked in three Democratic presidential campaigns (1976-84: Jimmy Carter, John Glenn, Walter Mondale), so he has seen both sides of the media and politics world. Although no longer practicing law, Crawford is still a licensed attorney in the Florida Bar.

While in high school, Crawford served as a United States Senate page (1972, appointed by Sen. Ed Gurney, R-Florida) and as a college student worked in the White House Press Office (1977, Carter Administration).

Craig is the author of Attack the Messenger, and The Politics of Life - most recently available in paperback. He is also the co-author of Listen Up, Mr. President: Everything You Always Wanted Your President to Know and Do.
