Members of Congress Pitch Their Town as Host for DNC Convention

As the Democratic National Committee is making site visits to potential host cities for the 2016 Democratic National Convention, The Washington Post’s Jackie Kucinich visited Capitol Hill to hear from several Members from finalist cities on why their town should be chosen.

Philadelphia’s Rep. Robert Brady (D-PA) entices with the “real” Philadelphia cheesesteak. Brooklyn’s Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) touts the new Manhattan as the home of Jay-Z. Birmingham’s Rep. Terri Sewell promotes that “magical things happen” in her town. And Phoenix’s Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) promises that everyday in Phoenix is a great hair day.

Also in the running as host city for the Democratic National Convention: Columbus (Ohio) and Cleveland, which was selected earlier this month as host city for the 2016 Republican National Convention. Philadelphia, Chicago and Miami have all hosted both conventions in the same year, most recently being Miami in 1972.

John McCain, CNN’s Jake Tapper, and NJ’s Ron Fournier

Last night at Sixth Engine, CNN and National Journal hosted “Politics on Tap,” a joint interview by CNN’s Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier’s of Sen. John McCain preceded by a panel discussion with CNN’s Peter Hamby and Brianna Keilar and NJ’s Michelle Cottle on pressing political issues.

The former presidential hopeful covered a lot of topical ground, including the downed Malaysia Airlines flight earlier that day, immigration, Israel and Iraq.

Asked by Tapper who from the Republican Party could run against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, McCain said, “I think we have a long list of people that could defeat Hillary Clinton. I think that Chris Christie is one. Jeb Bush is another. John Kasich is another. We’ve got some very successful governors that have done very well in their states that I think once exposed to the American people could be very competitive.”

For more, click on over to NJ and “The Lead,” and stay tuned to CNN for broadcast of some of the night’s conversation.

Washingtonian Wins the Summer with AT&T Best of Washington Party

photo4Last night at the National Building Museum, Washingtonian hosted its annual AT&T Best of Washington party, likely, the best event of the summer in DC. ‘Best of’ was Washingtonian’s first major event under the helm of its new editor, Michael Schaffer.

More than 60 of the magazine’s 100 Very Best Restaurants served samples bites from their menu, including 1789, Ted’s Bulletin, Toki Underground, BLT Steak, Hank’s Oyster Bar, Lyon Hall and STK, alongside libations including Pyrat Rum and Patrón Tequilas, among many, many, others (trust).

The soirée was themed “Madhatter,” and the “publisher’s reception” (aka VIP area) – sponsored by the American Beverage Association – offered guests dozens of costume hats to compliment attire. There was a maze, acrobatic performers and musicians, a BMW i8, and a Qatar Airways lounge featuring two of its fully-flat business class seats along with great music. Read more
