Hugh T. Ferguson is a political journalist in Washington DC where he covers parliamentary proceedings on the House and Senate floor. He also covers a variety of committee markups and writes pieces focused on analyzing the implications of legislation, regulatory issues and profiles on member of Congress.
He is originally from the Jersey Shore and went to college at Syracuse University where he received a B.A. at the Maxwell School in Political Science and Economics. He also received an M.A. from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Magazine, Newspaper and Online Journalism.
His typical day is filled with C-Span, newspapers, magazines, constant scrolling through twitter and is fueled by many dark coffee roasts. Hugh also has a habit of overly annunciating the “H” in his name in a futile attempt to convince baristas that his name is not in fact Q.
