Where: Washington Post
Ruth Marcus is an editorial writer at the Washington Post specializing in American politics, campaign finance, the federal budget and taxes, and other domestic issues. She also writes a weekly column that appears on Wednesdays, and she contributes to the PostPartisan blog.
Marcus has covered every institution in Washington, from the Supreme Court to the White House to Congress; she has reported on every major Washington story of the last two decades, from contested Supreme Court nominations to contested elections, from hard-fought political campaigns to a hard-fought presidential impeachment.
Marcus has been with The Post since 1984, beginning as a reporter on the Maryland staff, covering local development and other issues, and then transferring to the District staff to cover lawyers and legal issues. She joined the national staff in 1986, covering campaign finance, the Justice Department, the Supreme Court and the White House. From 1999 through 2002, she served as deputy national editor, supervising reporters who covered money and politics, Congress, the Supreme Court, and other national issues. She joined the editorial board in 2003. In 2007, after her first full year of column-writing, Marcus was a nominated finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for commentary.
Marcus was born in Philadelphia, Pa., and raised in Livingston, N.J.. She studied history at Yale and received her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
