Ben Terris, National Journal writer, announced on Twitter that he is joining The Washington Post’s Style section:
i'm incredibly excited (and a little terrified) to announce that i'll be heading to @poststyle to write political features.

Washington Post Style Editor Frances Sellers and Eva Rodriquez, Style deputy features editor, said in a statement:
Ben comes to us from National Journal where in three years he rocketed from writing spot news to covering the conservative freshman class of 2010 and recently distinguished himself with a series of insightful political feature stories.
Terris has big shoes to fill; he succeeds Jason Horowitz, who joined The New York Times and whose stories at The Washington Post included the relevation of young Mitt Romney’s bullying of a student who he and his friends thought was gay.
