A source on the Hill tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD that ABC's Diane Sawyer is trying to line up freshmen Republican congressmen for a segment the night before the new Congress begins its new session. This is the email from ABC producers to the freshmen Republicans:
"On Tuesday, January 4th, Diane would like to assemble a group of Freshmen Tea Party Members on the eve of the new congress to them about their hopes, their vision for the next two years and why they came to Washington. It would be a town hall style chat and would last about 45 minutes. I would love to make this happen. My info is below and would love to chat when you are free."
Update: This post initially reported that the segment would be a "45-minute special." An ABC official says that while the town hall would last 45 minutes, only a minute or two would make it on air.
