Implications of Midterm Elections Explored at CQ Roll Call Election Impact Conference

Two days after the 2014 midterm elections, National Republican Senatorial Committee executive director Rob Collins and his counterpart at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Guy Cecil will come together to discuss what just went down at the CQ Roll Call Election Impact Conference.

Roll Call editor-in-chief Christina Bellantoni will moderate the discussion with Collins and Cecil on the determined and yet-to-be-called Senate races of this year’s election cycle on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at The Liaison Capitol Hill.

The day-long event will also feature opening remarks from Stuart Rothenberg, editor and publisher of the Rothenberg Political Report. Former Rep. Thomas M. Davis (R-VA) and former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) will discuss how the new Congress will affect the legislative process. RC politics editor Shira T. Center will moderate the “What Happened?” panel with Rothenberg Political Report’s Nathan Gonzales, NBC News’ Perry Bacon, HuffPost’s Mark Blumenthal, and RC’s Abby Livingston. And RC’s David Hawkings will moderate the “What’s Next?” panel comprising RC’s Niels Lesniewski, Emily Ethridge, and Megan Scully and the Washington Examiner’s David Drucker.

The day is in partnership with GovLoop, National Review, Senior Executives Association, Federal News Radio, Federal Computer Week, Young Government Leaders, and the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

NJ Parties Like the Pink Panther

It was Night 4 of NJ‘s flurry of launch parties at the rented space on E St. Thursday night was thought to be the mother of parties so far. The room was packed. So much so, that partygoers periodically slipped out into the cool air when they couldn’t take the crowding. Or, when they hoped to flee the towering wine-drinking man in blue linen who pawed some female guests (he wasn’t with NJ and appeared to be a straggler who wandered in off the street. At least one woman pushed him away).

Guests enjoyed cocktails, fancy hors d’oeuvres and the sounds of a live jazz band. They complained of too few bathrooms and a sweltering indoor temperature.

The dimly-lit warehouse space was enveloped in red velvet curtains. NJ Daily Editor Jason Dick loosely bragged that he had attended party after party and wasn’t tiring of it.”This is how we roll,” he joked. “I take my cues for living from the old Pink Panther movies with the martinis.

“It’s a little bit more fun than I anticipated,” he said, referring to the new web site launch and subsequent parties. “We started this back in February and it was hard to see where it was going. We’re all working as hard as we ever have. There’s a lot more steam in our strides.”

NJ brass did their best to squash talk of a NJ-Politico rivalry. But partygoers chattered about it. “For me, Politico is a start, but I’m not going to get a lot of substance out of it,” said a guest. Others felt the party logo looked too much like Politico. Dick dismissed the so-called feud, saying there much less animosity and more friendship than people know. “I have a lot more friends than enemies at Politico,” he said. He laughed, saying people had tweeted earlier in the week about whether NJ and Politico were going to “meet in a parking lot with knives and guns.”

Fournier said he was “excited” about the launch but just as excited to make it an early night and get home to his wife and child.

Taking Out the Trash

Editor & Publisher reports NYT’s private jet is up for sale. Any takers?

Speaking of planes, Roll Call reported earlier today that Sen. David Vitter caused quite the scene at the airport last week, joining what Emily Heil and Elizabeth Brotherton called the “Mile-Low Club.” Their tipster who witnessed the scene said Vitter arrived late to the gate and, “Undeterred, Vitter opened the door, setting off a security alarm and prompting an airline worker to warn him that entering the gate was forbidden… employing the timeworn “do-you-know-who-I-am” tirade that apparently grew quite heated.” But Vitter says it isn’t so. He tells the Times-Picayune that report was “overstated” and says “I did have a conversation with an airline employee, but it was certainly not like this silly gossip column made it out to be.”

Even more former IWP’ers have been brought to our attention today: CongressDaily’s Megan Scully, Darren Goode, Anna Edney and Chris Strohm, Roll Call’s CongressNow’s Steve Langel, Salon’s Mark Benjamin and last, but certainly not least, Dow Jones Newswires’ Martin Vaughan.
