The New York Times has gone all in on politics with the debut of First Draft, a new site and newsletter dedicated to analyzing politics, elections and policies.

The Times is touting First Draft as “highly visual” and interactive. Readers will get a shot at asking Times editors anything from their take on the latest news to fact checking a bold claim.

The site will feature breaking news, highlights of the paper’s political coverage, and interviews with experts and big whigs. Speaking of important people, First Draft’s initial newsletter comes packing an interview with Vice President Joe Biden.

First Draft is overseen by Times Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan. Carl Hulse serves as chief Washington correspondent and managing editor of the site. His team is rounded out by reporter Alan Rappeport, and editors Nicholas Corasaniti and Paul Volpe.

You can sign up for First Draft’s newsletter here.
