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 jeff@na­tion­al­journ­al.com

WHY WE CARE

"An exhibit alongside the nation's chief memorial to Thomas Jefferson will receive an update that reflects 'the complexity' of his status as a founder of the United States and a slaveholder, according to stewards of the National Mall." The Trust for the National Mall, which works with the National Park Service to maintain the Mall, "has been planning to raise money to refurbish the National Park Service exhibit accompanying the memorial, which has deteriorated since its installment about 20 years ago." An official with the Trust told the Washington Examiner: "We can reflect the momentous contributions of someone like Thomas Jefferson, but also consider carefully the complexity of who he was. And that's not reflected right now in the exhibits."
