Dan Balz, chief correspondent of The Washington Post and for decades one of the leading chroniclers of American politics, was awarded the prestigious Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting on Monday night.


Balz was cited for several deeply reported stories, including a look at how Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) sought to exercise old-school, consensus-style politics in a sharply divided Senate; an intimate portrait of former Republican presidential candidate Robert J. Dole’s farewell tour of his native Kansas; and a report on how rising populism in the Democratic Party might affect the presidential campaign of former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton.
