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
