I received this e-mail today.
My name is Peter Wallsten and I’m the senior politics editor here at The Post. I wanted to reach out to make sure you knew about the Democratic presidential debate we’re co-hosting with MSNBC tonight. Having been deeply involved in the preparation, I can tell you that we are working diligently to present a lively, memorable and informative dialogue on pressing issues that readers around the country, like you, care about.
The Post’s White House Correspondent Ashley Parker will be one of the moderators alongside MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Andrea Mitchell and NBC’s Kristen Welker. Ashley has covered multiple presidential campaigns and Congress while writing frequently on the culture of Washington. And if you’ve read her byline or have seen her on TV, then you know Ashley is one of the most distinguished and authoritative chroniclers of the Trump presidency.
We will stream the entire debate on washingtonpost.com and our apps starting with a live show at 8 p.m. EST. The coverage will feature analysis from Post reporters, interviews with candidates and insights from our standard-setting Fact Checker team. It’s all part of our mission to inform the electorate and hold political leaders to account.
We hope you’ll watch with us.
Peter Wallsten, senior politics editor
Forget it. The Bucks are on tonight.
