Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman write the most-read newsletter in Washington, D.C., POLITCO Playbook, delivering the must-know news every day, twice a day. With over two decades of rise and grind journalistic experience between them, Palmer and Sherman focus on reporting succinctly and communicating perspective to their subscribers.

Authors of the New York Times best-selling book A Hill to Die On, the pair focused on Congress’ view of the Trump administration during the first two years. With government shutdowns looming and mercilessness abound, the book is an insider’s look to the workings of Washington.

Prior to writing POLITICO Playbook, Palmer was the co-author of the daily newsletter, POLITICO Influence.  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 of the weekly campus newspaper, the Manitou Messenger. She lives in Washington, D.C.
