PBS NewsHour US Election Webcast

Tune in to the PBS NewsHour TONIGHT for Paul Solman’s election-day investigation into the spending frenzy, part of his ongoing coverage – Making Sen$e of financial news.

Check local listings.

As the nation braces for the flood of electoral results, big-dollar funders are hoping their unprecedented contributions will finally pay off. Thanks in part to the recent Supreme Court decision lifting limits on corporate and union spending, 2010 has been a new record-setter for mid-term political financing.

I would like to invite you to participate in and embed the PBS NewsHour's live interactive election webcast, tonight (starting at 10 p.m. EST).

It's the first time PBS has done a broadcast-style show (hosted by Jim Lehrer and featuring the PBS NewsHour’s legendary political columnists Mark Shields & David Brooks) wholly online - and they're hoping to make it a big success.

For a full rundown of the multi-platform, election-night plans and interactive social media stream, go to PBS NewsHour.
