Political trivia abounded at the Newseum July 9 as congressional representatives, journalists, and political strategists tried to prove who knew more about Scott Brown's pink shorts or bipartisan gaffes.
Over five rounds, co-moderated by National Journal Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve and Hotline Editor-in-Chief Scott Bland, Teams "Members Only," "Press Pass," and "Hotline Insiders" battled buzzers to earn the title of biggest political junkies.
In the end, "Press Pass" won the day with 290 points with the help of Bloomberg News's Greg Giroux, Roll Call's Shira T. Center, The Washington Post's Paul Kane, The New York Times' Jonathan Martin, and The Los Angeles Times' Mike Memoli.
Team "Members Only" walked away with 225 points, and "Hotline Insiders" with 200.
Rep. Rich Hudson of Team Members Only walked away with the coveted "Tom Davis Favorite Award," named for teammate former Rep. Tom Davis. The congressional delegation from District Trivia included Rep. Donna Edwards and Rep. Loretta Sanchez and Rep. Steve Israel.
The "Hotline Insiders" team included Republican pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson, The Polling Company's Kellyanne Conway, Purple Strategies' Margie Omero, IMPACT Strategies' Angela Rye, and SKD Knickerbocker's Doug Thornell.
