In three weeks, a deeply divided United States is heading into the crucial midterm elections.
Democrats and Republicans will face-off on November eighth for what many are calling the most important election in the U.S. At stake are both chambers of Congress – with all 435 seats of the House of Representatives and 34 in the Senate up for grabs. Right now, the Democratic party controls both Houses, but polls indicate the Republicans could make major gains.
What will that mean for President Joe Biden’s legislative agenda?
Joining the discussion:
- Joel Rubin is a former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.
- Melik Abdul is a Republican strategist.
- Eric Bolling hosts “The Balance” on Newsmax TV.
- Douglass Sloan is principal and senior political analyst at National Capitol Strategy Group.
This year’s midterm elections are playing out as a strange continuation of the last presidential race — Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden — and serving as a potential preview of the next one. https://t.co/dNMNRc9DKi
