Politico‘s Policy Lunches at Dem Convention

Politico will feature newsmakers at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in the form of policy lunches. They will discuss the economy, energy and healthcare and hopefully this will be less boring than it sounds.

Lunch begins at noon. They will be showcased the “Politico Hub” (222 S. Church Street) and streamed on Politico.com. The fare doesn’t sound half bad. “No boxed lunches!” remarked a member of Politico‘s Event’s team. “Fresh sandwiches like herb encrusted pesto chicken sandwich with spiced aioli on fresh ciabatta bread.”
