His work during the primaries focused on the campaign for the Democratic nomination, including extensive coverage of the bid of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

He 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 and the final years in office of former Sen. Jesse Helms.
