It was all fun and games at last night’s National Journal/The Hotline Trivia event. Using questions devised by Hotline staffers, journos and politicos were put to the test in a Political-Pursuit Jeopardy-style trivia game.
Question categories ranged from TV ads to scandals and family to politics. A few of our favorite questions from the event:
What car did Tom Daschle use in a TV ad for an early Congressional race?
Which politician did not use his dog in TV ads?
Senators Claire McCaskill(D-Mo) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn) were just a few of the guests that packed the space to cheer on their favorite teams. McCaskill (@clairecmc) had to be urged not to Tweet the answers while jokes were cracked about Klobuchar’s responsibility for recounts in the endless Franken/Coleman Senate battle.
In the end, the “Members Only” team (Casey, Brown, Davis and Kirk) walked away victorious.
Special thanks to Daniel Lippman who was on hand to cover the event for Fishbowl.
