Watch it live: Republican leaders interviewed at Facebook

Summary:The Republican Young Guns are being interviewed at Facebook's headquarters today. It's a live interview, so anyone can tune in.

Update: Since the event is over, I've replaced the live stream with the dedicated video.

As announced last week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan are at Facebook's headquarters today for a live one-hour interview. You can watch the video stream starting at 3:00 PM PDT / 6:00 PM EST in the video embedded above or over at Facebook Live.

If you have questions for the three Republican leaders, you can post on the Facebook Event's Wall in hopes that they will answer one of them during the interview. The Republican Party isn't very popular on Facebook – it has some 160,000 Facebook Likes on its official Facebook Page.

According to the announcement, the trio will "talk about what they're doing in Washington D.C. to help the US economy rebound and how technology is changing the way government works." The three leaders are sometimes referred to as the "Young Guns" since they co-authored last year's paperback, "Young Guns: A New Generation of Conservative Leaders."

Facebook arguably gets brand boost with these types of interviews, while the Republicans hope to grow their online following. The social network after all has 800 million monthly active users.
