Politico editor: ‘I’m surprised by how quickly we’ve become as big as we are today’

“We always had big ambitions for Politico but things have certainly moved quickly,” Jim VandeHei says in an interview about Politico Pro. The executive editor says with the new subscription site, “we’re going to dig really deep into the committees that matter, the agencies that matter, the people in the political world outside of government, lobbyists, academics… really cover what’s happening.”
