Seema Mehta

Staff Writer

Seema Mehta is a political writer who is covering the 2022 midterm elections that will determine control of Congress. She previously wrote about the 2020, 2016, 2012 and 2008 presidential campaigns, as well as several gubernatorial, Senate, congressional and mayoral races. Mehta was a Knight-Wallace fellow at the University of Michigan for the 2018-19 academic year, an opportunity she used to study automation and artificial intelligence – developments that could spur the next iteration of the Industrial Revolution, indelibly changing the nation’s identity, policies and politics. The Syracuse University graduate and 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, she can’t imagine living somewhere she couldn’t golf year-round.
