Philip Wegmann

Philip Wegmann is the Chief Political Correspondent at Real Clear Politics. He formerly was a writer at Washington Examiner. He comments on the issue of the day and has done investigative reporting on congressional corruption and institutional malfeasance.

In addition, Wegmann has worked as a radio producer and congressional correspondent. He can be seen regularly on CNN, Fox, and Fox Business and his voice has been heard on the BBC, NPR, and numerous other radio outlets. Wegmann was a fellow of the America’s Future Foundation writing program, a Publius fellow of the Claremont Institute, and an Eagle Scout.

Before journalism, Wegmann grew up in little Woodburn, Indiana then graduated from even smaller Hillsdale College with degrees in History and Politics. When the weather is nice, and sometimes even when it isn’t, he can be found weaving in-and-out of traffic on his beloved Honda, a beautiful 1981 CB750 motorcycle.
