Our Mission

In a world of media spin and special interest bias, CQ Roll Call has stayed true to its roots. From Capitol Hill hearing rooms to campaign war rooms, from the White House to the House and Senate floors, CQ Roll Call covers Congress, inside and out.

As the leading provider of congressional news, legislative tracking and advocacy services, CQ Roll Call is the only media company that connects policy professionals and opinion leaders with the information and tools they need to understand and influence Congress.

With the largest press corps on Capitol Hill, CQ Roll Call has earned a reputation for delivering comprehensive, accurate and objective congressional reporting. We help you track and understand the people, the politics and the process—and how these forces affect your interests. Moreover, CQ Roll Call provides an innovative array of channels to reach Capitol Hill, empowering private citizens and power players alike with the ability to position their message in front of members of Congress and their staff.

CQ Roll Call’s clients span the policy-making arena. From congressional offices and federal departments and agencies to major corporations, leading associations, law and lobbying firms, media, and academia, we serve the people and institutions that make and shape public policy.

A wholly-owned subsidiary of The Economist Group, CQ Roll Call was formed by bringing together three companies – Congressional Quarterly, Roll Call and Capitol Advantage – with histories nearly as rich as the people, institutions and legislation it covers. The visionaries behind these companies were Nelson Poynter, Sid Yudain and Robert Hansan. By establishing CQ, Roll Call and Capitol Advantage, each left an indelible mark on America’s capital city. Though they shared great ambition and a keen entrepreneurial sense, each encompassed distinct views on how to change Washington for the better.
