Congressman Kevin Cramer Will Hold Open Thread Town Hall Here On SAB


I’m pleased to announce that Rep. Kevin Cramer will be holding a town hall specifically for SAB readers (and whoever else decides to show up).

We’ve scheduled it for April 1st at 6:00pm central time (Rep. Cramer plans on joining us from Washington DC).

Yes, it’s April Fool’s day, but it isn’t a joke. I promise. It is the day that worked for the Congressman.

It’ll work like a Reddit AMA, if you’re familiar with those. I’ll put up an open thread about an hour before the Congressman joins. You readers can post your questions in the comments thread. At 6:00pm Rep. Cramer will begin responding to them. He’ll stick around for an hour.

This is a pretty special treat for SAB, a first to be sure, and something I’d like to do with more of our public figures in the future. As such, I’ll be moderating the thread pretty closely. Tough questions are, of course, welcome, but anyone who is name-calling, behaving in a crude manner or disrupting the thread making it difficult for others to engage with Rep. Cramer will have their comments deleted.

It’s not an easy ask to get a member of Congress to engage in a wide-open blog comment thread, so let’s try to treat this event with the respect it deserves so that we can have more of them in the future.
