I am the Des Moines Bureau Chief for The Gazette. I am based in Des Moines, where I cover Iowa politics and government, including the Iowa Legislature, the governor and state agencies, and the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. I am a Wisconsin native, so if you follow me on Twitter, sorry about all the Badgers tweets.
