CNN and National Journal to Host ‘Politics on Tap’ with Sen. John McCain

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 15.41.52Look out BuzzFeed Brews. There’s a new beer drinking news platform in town.

CNN and National Journal are joining forces to explore the midterm elections the best way possible…with a cold one in hand.

Dubbed “Politics on Tap,” the program will feature an interview by CNN’s Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier of Sen. John McCain followed by a panel discussion with CNN’s Peter Hamby NJ’s Michelle Cottle, and CNN’s Brianna Keilar on the growing divide in the Republican Party and how the changing face of the GOP and Congressional leadership may impact this November’s midterm elections.

Slated for next Thursday at Sixth Engine, the invite (which hasn’t gone out yet) is a steal in that a-the topic is definitely interesting and b-who doesn’t want to drink with this crowd. Only thing that could make it better is if Rep. Aaron Schock were involved.

We’ll be there, and hope to see you there, too!

See the invite – sans RSVP dets (sorry) – after the jump. Cheers! Read more

Site Selection Committee Recommends Cleveland as 2016 Host City for RNC

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 12.18.55The Republican National Committee’s Site Selection Committee today announced its support for Cleveland as the 2016 convention host city. The final running was between the Ohio city on Lake Erie and Dallas. In June, Denver and Kansas City were eliminted as possible host cities.

The RNC and Cleveland will now enter into exclusive negotiations regarding the city’s bid to host the 2016 convention. And at an August meeting in Chicago, the Site Selection Committee will present their recommendation to the RNC.

Eind Michelsen, chairwoman of the RNC Site Selection Committee, said, “Cleveland is a phenomenal city, and I can’t think of a better place to showcase our party and our nominee in 2016.”

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus added, “A Cleveland convention offers our party a great steppingstone to the White House in 2016, and I’m encouraged by the committee’s recommendation. The team from Cleveland has gone above and beyond the call of duty and I think they’re representative of a city eager to show the country all the fantastic things they have to offer.”

Cleveland also has a bid to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

That said, it’s never too early to start planning where to go out! We reached out to a friend who lives in downtown Cleveland for the lowdown on what not to miss around the Cleveland Convention Center (300 Lakeside Avenue) near East 4th, the Warehouse District, and The Flats.
