CQ Launches “VP Madness”

From the release:

    Congressional Quarterly Inc., the nation’s premier provider of news and analysis on Congress, politics and public policy, today announced the launch of CQ Politics’ VP Madness (GOP Edition) on www.cqpolitics.com.

    VP Madness, an interactive game modeled after the NCAA college basketball tournament, enables political enthusiasts of every stripe to select John McCain’s running mate from a competitive field of potential GOP vice presidential candidates. …

    CQ Politics reporters and editors have narrowed the field to 32 potential running mates, handicapped the races, pitted the candidates in head-to-head matchups and provided the scoop on who might have the inside track. The contest includes a wide variety of people assembled in this virtual smoke-filled room: front-runners and long shots, household names and Cinderellas.

    CQ Politics users will vote on first-round match-ups starting Thursday, May 1st and then return to make subsequent picks based on the results of each round, culminating in a final VP pick on Thursday, May 22nd. VP Madness can be found at www.cqpolitics.com/vpmadness. Make your first-round picks today.
