Dylan Scott is a policy reporter for Vox, leading the news organization’s coverage of the Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, the 2017 tax overhaul and the 2018 midterm elections.
He previously reported for STAT, National Journal, Talking Points Memo and Governing magazine. Since coming to Washington, D.C., in 2011, he has covered the biggest political news of the day: Supreme Court rulings on the Affordable Care Act and gay marriage, the opening of diplomatic relations with Cuba, the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the 2016 presidential campaign. He has broken news on major developments on Capitol Hill, interviewed the most powerful people in politics including Vice President Joe Biden, and traveled across the country to tell stories beyond the Beltway.
Dylan’s first job out of college took him to the award-winning Las Vegas Sun in 2010, where he covered the fallout of the Great Recession in one of the country’s hardest-hit metropolitan areas.
Before graduating from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, he was awarded first place by the Associated Press Society of Ohio for Best Investigative Reporting for a series of stories exposing questionable accounting practices and budget decisions by the university’s administration.
