Watch the US Election Results in Beijing
Will Republicans take the House? Will Democrats keep the Senate? Will Tea Party candidates coast to victory, or blunder into defeat? How did the China issue play in these elections?
If you’re in Beijing, and want to be among the first to find out, Republicans Abroad is hosting an informal get-together this Wednesday morning (November 3th) to watch the real-time results come in for the U.S. midterm elections.
Despite what you might imagine, this won’t be a particularly hardnosed partisan event, just a chance to get together in front of a big-screen TV. So it doesn’t matter how you voted, of even if you voted — if you’re just curious to find out what happens, you’re welcome to attend. (Non-US citizens are welcome, as are members of the Beijing press corps so long as they respect the fact that this gathering is a private chance for people to enjoy themselves and is strictly off the record).
The gathering will take place at the Music Room of the Capital Club, which is located on the 50th Floor of Capital Mansion, No. 6 Xin Yuan Nan Road, in the Chaoyang district of Beijing. If you need the address in Chinese, you can find it here. We’ll start at 7:30am and run until 10:00am. A complete breakfast (eggs, bacon, orange juice, etc.) will be served. There is a charge of RMB 115 per person, which is solely to cover the cost of the room and the breakfast.
