Politico’s Mike Allen announced in Playbook this morning the hiring of Carla Marinucci to run another new playbook, this time in California. Marinucci, a senior political writer at the San Francisco Chronicle, will move over to Politico to run the California Playbook.
Marinucci tweeted the news today, replying to congratulations from a former California Governator:

Thanks so much, Governor. You know it it's true: Covering CA politics can be an action adventure flick every day! https://t.co/clMXcIBYtQ

Marinucci has something in common with the writers of the New Jersey and Massachusetts Playbooks, also launched this year. All three were reporters working for state-based publications who were hired away by Politico.
