Feed the Watchdog. Read the Caucus.
The Caucus is a weekly watchdog publication with world-class investigative reporting and expert analysis at its core. The Caucus aims to bring sunlight to Pennsylvania state government, and is distributed weekly to the Governor and every member of the Pennsylvania State Legislature.
Everything You Need to Know about PA Politics.
The Caucus delivers hard-hitting investigative reporting from the halls of the Pennsylvania Capitol. The veteran team of political journalists provides information and analysis of the bills, hearings, fundraisers, protests and upcoming events that affect life in Pennsylvania.
“When American journalism is retreating from old-fashioned investigative reporting, The Caucus, led by Brad Bumsted, the bureau chief, and investigative reporters, Paula Knudsen, and Michael Wereschagin, is stepping into the fray, fighting for peoples’ right to know.”
- Joseph Sabino Mistick, Duquesne University Law School Professor
“Anyone who wants to know what's happening behind the scenes in Harrisburg needs to read The Caucus. It's bold, interesting, and Brad, Paula, Mike, and Tom provide outstanding journalism that puts a spotlight on state government.”
- Kyle C. Kopko, Ph.D., Assistant Dean for Academic Achievement and Engagement Director, Honors & Pre-Law Programs Associate Professor of Political Science
