John Wagner has covered Maryland government and politics for The Post since 2004.

His coverage during that span includes the administrations of Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) and former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) — and both the 2006 and 2010 elections that pitted the two rivals against one another. More recently, he has written about the early stages of the 2014 gubernatorial race and O'Malley's maneuvers as a possible 2016 presidential candidate.

John has also covered prominent issues in Maryland including the legalization of same-sex marriage, the repeal of the death penalty and the expansion of state-sanctioned gambling.

John came to The Post from The (Raleigh, N.C.) News & Observer, where he served as the paper’s Washington correspondent, covering the 2004 presidential bid of then-Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) and the final years in office of former Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.).
