Seema Mehta

Writer

Seema Mehta is a political writer for the Los Angeles Times. She covered the 2016, 2012 and 2008 presidential campaigns, as well as multiple gubernatorial, Senate and mayoral races. Mehta is a frequent face on television, appearing weekly on MSNBC, as well as on CNN, ABC, BBC and other outlets. She was named one of the top state political reporters in the nation by the Washington Post and completed a media fellowship at Stanford University. Mehta also contributed to Times’ coverage of devastating wildfires that won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news. A graduate of Syracuse University, the East Coast native swore when she joined The Times in 1998 that she would only spend a few years on the Left Coast. Many years, a husband, a house and a few cats later, Seema can’t imagine living somewhere she couldn’t golf year-round.
