Writer

Jeff Barker writes about sports business and issues, casino gambling and, occasionally, politics. Since joining The Sun from the Arizona Republic’s Washington bureau in 2000, he has covered state politics, congressional steroids hearings, the Beltway sniper attacks and Terps basketball and football. He could never decide if he should cover news or sports, so he did both and enjoys writing hybrids of the two.
