Cheddar’s Midterms Update: What’s at Stake on November 6th?
The midterm elections represent the halfway point of a President’s term. Historically, President’s dislike midterm elections because they often serve as a referendum on the current administration. Incumbents lose seats in one or both houses of Congress a majority of the time. With thin margins in the Senate, the results of the midterms this year may define the remainder of President Trump’s term.
There are about 300 days until the midterm elections, but who’s counting? This year’s midterms will be important to watch. The results may change the balance of power in Washington. Cheddar’s J.D. Durkin takes a look at What’s at stake on November 6th, and will continue to take an in-depth look each week at the key races that will define the election cycle.
