Casey Tolan

Hello! I'm a reporter with the San Jose Mercury News and the East Bay Times, covering politics and the Trump administration's relationship with California. I was previously a national reporter at Fusion, and I've also reported for Slate, CNN International, The Daily Beast, VICE, and the Texas Observer, among other outlets.

I care about telling interesting stories and elevating marginalized voices. My reporting has been cited in political attack ads, a federal criminal complaint, and a death row inmate's final appeal -- and by President Obama. You can reach me at caseytolan@gmail.com.




Some of my clips: Best of | Politics | Criminal Justice | Immigration | International | Investigative | Longform
