Axios congressional reporter Kadia Goba is rejoining BuzzFeed News, where she’ll cover national politics with a focus on the GOP.

“Kadia Goba will be returning to BuzzFeed News on June 1 as our new national political reporter focused on the future of the Republican Party,” politics editor Matt Berman wrote in a staff memo Thursday.

Goba will cover the GOP during this “sort-of-but-not-really post-Trump moment,” Berman added, saying she will report on Republicans both on and off Capitol Hill.


During a previous sting at BuzzFeed, Goba covered Congress and then the White House before leaving last fall for Axios.

“Her work is likely already familiar to most of you,” Berman added. “At Axios, she’s broken news across Congress, including a big scoop last week on House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthyKevin McCarthyGOP divided over bills targeting tech giants GOP increasingly balks at calling Jan. 6 an insurrection House Democrats' campaign arm raises almost million in May MORE’s hot mic split with Liz CheneyElizabeth (Liz) Lynn CheneyCheney: 'It is disgusting and despicable' to see Gosar 'lie' about Jan. 6 GOP's Stefanik defends Trump DOJ secret subpoenas McCarthy pushes back on Biden criticism of GOP at NATO MORE.”

Separately, a report earlier this week said BuzzFeed is involved in a deal to buy digital lifestyle publisher Complex Networks and go public after merging with special acquisition company 890 Fifth Avenue Partners.
