About Conor Yunits

Conor Yunits spends most of his time writing op-eds, statements and speeches for other people. He once wrote a political blog that was hailed as "a new model for election blogging" by the Washington Examiner, profiled by WBUR and WGBH in Boston, and praised by The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, The Hartford Courant and The Washington Post. He tweets @conoryunits, probably too much.
