In a memo to staff on Monday, Race and Ethnicity Editor Andale Gross announced that Kat Stafford has been named AP national investigative race writer:
AP’s extensive and fact-based coverage of the 2020 presidential election will be as deep as it is broad.
With political reporters based in key states around the country – and reporters on the ground in all 50 U.S. states – AP journalists are taking a hard look at the core issues affecting voters.
AP style will continue to lowercase the term white in racial, ethnic and cultural senses. This decision follows our move last month to capitalize Black in such uses. We consulted with a wide group of people internally and externally around the globe and considered a variety of commentary in making these decisions.
