Meghan McCain

I’d like to extend a warm welcome to columnist, blogger and author Meghan McCain, the newest member of the Why Tuesday? Advisory Board. As we dive into the 2012 election season our entire team is happy to have Meghan by our side as we fight the war against low voter turnout. Here’s a little bit more on Meghan, from her bio over at The Daily Beast:

Meghan McCain is a columnist for The Daily Beast. Originally from Phoenix, she graduated from Columbia University in 2007. She is a New York Times bestselling children’s author, previously wrote for Newsweek, and created the website mccainblogette.com. Her most recent book, Dirty Sexy Politics, was published in August 2010.

We’re very much looking forward to working with her!
