Politico to Host Mystery Countdown Event

Politico is sending out “Save the Date” invites to their November one-year countdown election news event. The gathering will be held on Nov. 1. The locale is still secret. They promise political bigwigs will attend.

The time: 8 a.m. Please, Politico, we know you’re into world domination, but does everyone have to wake at 4 a.m.?

We can’t hint many more details to you because a certain reporter whose name rhymes with Bike Hallen called first dibs on it. But what we can tell you is that the event includes a “fun lunch” that will not be boring boxed meals or an otherwise lame seated affair. What’s more, many of the networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) are participating, along with senior political reporters from all partnering publications (such as the Des Moines Register), and some “very” senior former admin officials. And don’t forget Politico‘s “all-star” cast that includes Mike Allen (no relation to Bike Hallen), Jim VandeHei, Jonathan Martin, Maggie Haberman, Alex Burns, Charlie Mahtesian and Rachel Smolkin.

Note to readers: I’m told FishbowlDC readers are welcome to RSVP.
