Ronayne hired by AP as NH state politics reporter

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Kathleen Ronayne, who has covered state and national politics, campaign finance, and legislative developments, has been hired by The Associated Press as a reporter in the New Hampshire statehouse.

Ronayne comes to the AP after two years at the Concord Monitor, where she covered state politics and the complexities of a massive citizen legislature. She also reported on the governor's re-election bid and a high-profile U.S. Senate race featuring incumbent Jeanne Shaheen facing a challenge from one of three Republicans.

Her appointment was announced Thursday by Karen Testa, editor for the East region of the U.S.

"In a relatively short time, Kathleen has distinguished her reporting for its depth and context. She reports not just what is happening, but why and what it means. We are looking forward to bringing her diligence, curiosity and creativity to our team in New Hampshire," Testa said.

In addition to state government and state election coverage, Ronayne also will work closely with AP's political team in Washington on coverage of presidential politics, particularly New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary.

Prior to working at the Monitor, Ronayne held internships at The Buffalo News, where she wrote news and features and covered the state primary elections and redistricting process; the Center for Responsive Politics in Washington, D.C.; and The Gazette Newspapers in Schenectady, N.Y.

Ronayne, 24, is originally from upstate New York and now lives in Concord. She is a graduate of Syracuse University, where she earned degrees in journalism and political science.
