Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist David Broder dies at 81


The Washington press corps has lost its dean. David Broder, a Pultizer Prize-winning columnist and respected political correspondent, passed away Wednesday at the age of 81. Broder’s political coverage, which included attending every presidential convention since 1956, earned him a reputation as a thought leader on political trends.

Former Vice President Walter Mondale called Broder the “preeminent political journalist and columnist in the country. He was the best. He was solid and careful. His sources and his understanding were so deep.”
