Conservative political commentator David Frum will become a senior editor at The Atlantic on March 31. He’ll also submit web material and participate in events of the magazine.

Editor-in-chief James Bennet called Frum a “gutsy, heterodox thinker and a lovely writer.”

Author of eight books including “Dead Right” and “Why Romney Lost,” Frum wrote editorials for the Wall Street Journal and worked at the Manhattan Institute and American Enterprise Institute.

He contributed to the Industry Standard, National Review and served as special assistant to President George W. Bush and foreign policy to Rudy Giuliani ‘s ill-fated presidential run.
