Meet the team behind RollCall
Eli Yokley is a political reporter at Roll Call. Yokley began his career covering Missouri and national politics in the spring of 2010 while he was 18-years-old and graduating high school. There, he covered the contentious House primary race in Southwest Missouri that was created by Roy Blunt’s decision to run successfully for U.S. Senate, coverage that propelled Yokley to national recognition for his shoe-leather journalism on PoliticMo.com. Yokley is from Webb City, Mo., and graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2015.
