FamousDC Convenes with GOP in Houston
FamousDC traveled down South to convene presidential campaign staff, national media, and major influencers for another exclusive pre-debate event. We’ve been following the debate trail since last summer when America could hardly count all the candidates in the running, and now just five men will stand at tonight’s tenth GOP debate in Houston, Texas. As has become customary this campaign season none of this happens before DC elite, national press, politicos, and campaign staff from around the country gather for some quality face time the evening before.
We’d like to thank our headline sponsor, PhRMA without whom, the night would not have been possible.
We would also like to thank our Co-Host Maverick PAC, for helping us ring in an amazing night. Additional thanks go out to Holly Campbell (PhRMA), Ally Funk (PhRMA), Jay Zeidman (Maverick PAC), Luke Marchant (Mammoth Marketing Group) Nathan Imperiale (NJI Media), Josh Shultz (FDC Media) and Marie Formica (FDC Media) and Noelle Clemente (Bryant Row).
The A-list guest list included professionals from the top media outlets including CNN, Politico, CBS, NBC, Fox News, Facebook, Snapchat, Buzzfeed, National Journal, The Washington Post, TIME, Breitbart, Real Clear Politics, the Gaurdian, Boston Globe, Washington Examiner. The Presidential campaign teams were equally well-represented, as top level staffers from the Rubio, Carson and Cruz campaigns were in attendance.
Guests gathered at one of Houston’s hottest restaurants, Batanga to enjoy delicious food, drink and jam to live music. Signature cocktails including pineapple mojitos and champagne were served alongside delicious appetizers of mushroom croquettes, albondigas, chicken pinxtos, mini hanger steak crostini and more.
