The channel will offer election-related video clips,a live streams of the days events,and Google+ Hangouts with “power brokers”who are behind the scenes from now through November 6.

Along with videos from politicians and the political parties,original content will be provided by network heavy hitters such as ABC News,Larry King,The New York Times,The Wall Street Journal and an Al Jazeera English Live Stream.  You can watch what is going on live,follow the feed,or leave a comment on the channel.
