National Journal and CNN Present 'Politics On Tap' - New Discussion Series on the 2014 Midterm Elections

Inaugural Event to Feature Interview with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) -- Conducted by National Journal's Ron Fournier and CNN's Jake Tapper

Politics on Tap, a new event series from National Journal and CNN, debuts this Thursday, July 17, featuring interviews and debate on the 2014 midterm elections and the key issues impacting them this year. As part of the inaugural event, CNN Anchor and Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper and National Journal Senior Political Columnist Ron Fournier will interview Senator John McCain (R-AZ) on the growing immigration crisis at the border and the changing face of the GOP in the final months leading up to the elections in November.

The idea for the partnership between CNN and National Journal came out of the news organizations' shared interest and commitment to covering political news and to bringing the newsmakers interviewed in National Journal's pages and CNN's programming to their readers and viewers in an even more accessible and interactive way.


Thursday's event will kick off with a panel of journalists from both news organizations, featuring National Journal Senior Writer Michelle Cottle and CNN's Senior Political Correspondent Brianna Keilar and National Political Reporter Peter Hamby to be followed by the discussion with Senator McCain.

National Journal and CNN are co-presenters of Politics on Tap, which this week will take place at Sixth Engine in Washington, D.C. Registration and networking begin at 5:30pm followed by the hour-long program at 6:00pm.

Thursday's event is SOLD OUT. Media interested in covering the event should contact Jeff Cartwright at
