Dispatch Live: Speaker Who? 

First off, our apologies for the delay in today’s Dispatch Live email and link—it has been quite the news day. 

Kevin McCarthy has waited a very, very, very long time for the day he (might) be elected speaker. And today, it turns out, may not even be that day. We don’t know whether there will be a new speaker of the House by the time we do Dispatch Live tonight. But, Sarah, Jonah, Audrey, and Harvest will be ready for a full update on what happened throughout the day, why it matters, what it was like inside the House chamber, and what it means for the future of the GOP. 

And, as some of you may have heard, our friend and colleague David French is taking his considerable talents to the New York Times, where he’ll be a columnist. David has been one of the most important members of The Dispatch team and we’re sorry to see him go. But we’re happy that we’ll still have him on the Advisory Opinions podcast with Sarah and we’re confident that he’ll be hanging around these parts long after he assumes his new position. 

Tune in on January 3 at 8 p.m. ET on YouTube. Come with your questions, grab a drink (or a few), and settle in for a meaningful conversation.
