Mike DeVine

Mike DeVine, presently with the Ruf Law Firm in Metro Atlanta, is the managing editor of HillbillyPolitics and PoliticalDaily; Atlanta Law and Politics columnist for Examiner.com; and regular blogger at Unified Patriots and Redstate.com. His work at Redstate was featured in a PBS Special on conservative bloggers which led to a stint as the conservative op-ed voice of the Charlotte Observer and regular appearances in The New York Times, The Hill, Wall Street Journal, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and other major print and online publications. DeVine’s writing career was launched soon after his Summer of 2001 move to Atlanta and “conservative epiphany.” While the legal editor for The (Decatur, GA) Champion, he wrote the first post-9/11 column published in the United States suggesting that captured terrorists would not be entitled to POW rights. Previously, DeVine had been an active Democratic Party county chairman, convention delegate, and campaign manager in S.C. He matriculated at the University of South Carolina School of Law, Spartanburg Methodist College, and Wofford College, where he earned Phi Bet Kappa honors and taught Business Law.
