We're looking for a savvy, aggressive lead political writer who can parachute into the thick of election year politics in Kansas and Missouri and hit the ground ready to go. Both states feature races of national consequence. Kansas will choose a successor to longtime Republican Sen. Pat Roberts. In Missouri, Democrats hope to exploit President Trump's waning appeal to topple incumbent Gov. Mike Parson. Applicants should be able to move seamlessly across multiple kinds of stories: the daily push-and-pull; longer pieces that tell us what voters are thinking and seeing, how campaigns are trying to drive their message and how each candidate might govern if elected. The successful applicant would be working with Washington and Kansas-based reporters who are among the best in the business.
