Aaron C. Davis covers Maryland government and politics for The Washington Post. Last year, he tracked Gov. Martin O’Malley’s (D) re-election success in an otherwise big year for Republicans. This year, he has taken an in depth look at interests behind O’Malley’s drive to develop offshore wind; Maryland’s growing debt load; and forces behind repeated failures to update the state’s gun-control laws. Prior to joining The Post in 2008, Davis covered California government and politics for The Associated Press and San Jose Mercury News. He has also covered law enforcement, aviation, and the environment. He recently reported from Iraq, and has reported from Israel, India and Europe.
