Today we held our first TPM Inside Briefing with Ben Wikler, DC Director of Moveon.org. Thanks to everyone who joined the discussion and asked questions. We’re holding our second briefing this Friday with Marc Elias, the preeminent election lawyer in the Democratic party. If you’re interested in getting the very latest information on how critical voting rights questions and cases are playing out in the final weeks of the campaign and what impact the election is likely to have on the franchise going forward, join me after the jump for more details and how to join the call.
As I explained last week, Inside Briefings are part our new TPM Inside membership, which is slated to launch later this month. But in the critical weeks before we launch, we’re opening Inside Briefings to all current Prime members.
These briefings are essentially conference calls you can join either by phone or a web interface. I do a brief, focused interview with our guest. Then we open it up to questions from subscribers. I moderate the Q&A.
As I wrote above, Marc is the Democratic party’s preeminent election lawyers. It’s hard to find a major election or voting rights or campaign finance case he’s not involved in or the lead lawyer on. We will discuss critical voting rights questions still up for grabs in the final weeks of the campaign, the impact of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation on a raft of voting rights issues that will be coming before the Court, and more.
Want to join us? It’s easy. Our discussion with Marc will be at 2 PM Eastern this Friday, October 12th. If you’d like to join us for that call, click the thumbs up icon at the bottom of this post. Please do so before 7 pm Eastern Wednesday evening. Again, any current Prime member can join us. No charge. No nothing. This is only to get an invitation to this briefing with instructions on how to RSVP.
