Facebook hosts ‘Young Guns’

Facebook announced Monday that chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg will host an online discussion next week with the House Republicans’ “Young Guns” — Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Whip Kevin McCarthy and Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.
The event reflects Facebook’s increasing engagement with Washington, and House Republicans’ efforts at online innovation, including Cantor’s “YouCut” program and the conference’s “Pledge to America” ahead of last year’s midterms.
Topics will include what the three leaders are “doing in Washington D.C. to help the U.S. economy rebound and how technology is changing the way government works,” Facebook said.
The event will be held on Facebook Live on Monday, Sept. 26, at 6 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. PT.

The three leaders co-authored last year’s paperback, “Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders.”
