Good Monday morning. You're invited ... to a blockbuster Axios News Shapers conversation at noon Wednesday in downtown D.C.: I'll host back-to-back conversations with Vice President Pence, just back from the Olympics, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who has a new six-point plan for protecting U.S. elections. RSVP.

  • Because of security, doors open at 10 a.m. I'll be there to visit with you.
  • Outside cameras and correspondents welcome. Hope to see you there.

If you're in the Bay Area ... Please join us for cocktails and conversation tomorrow (Tuesday) at 5 p.m. at The Pearl in San Francisco, with Axios media editor Sara Fischer and Richard Edelman, president and CEO of Edelman. RSVP.
