Hey, Yacob Reyes here. I am a reporter for Axios based in Tampa, Florida. I have written about Gov. Ron DeSantis' presidential campaign, the "Don't Say Gay" law, and the first known U.S. case of the Omicron variant. I have spent days sifting through public records to hold those with power in Florida accountable. I have withstood aggressive blowback from government officials and kept writing. Previously, I worked as a staff writer for PolitiFact, covering misinformation tied to Florida politicians and legislative issues. Before that, I covered national breaking news on Axios' Newsdesk.

As seen in: Axios, PolitiFact, Poynter Online, The Tampa Bay Times, The Miami Herald, The Tallahassee Democrat, The Sarasota Herald-Tribune, The Houston Chronicle, The Dallas Morning News, KFF Health News, and NBC 6 South Florida, among others.
