Races to Watch, Part I: A Look Ahead to November 6

October 4, 2018 | 2:00 PM – 2:30 PM

BGOV’s Races To Watch — 2018 Midterm Elections

The 2018 midterms are fast approaching, with many analysts forecasting a Democratic tidal wave.  Midterm elections are often a referendum on the president, and this year will be no exception. But with President Trump’s approval rating sagging even with economic indicators at record highs, a record number of women running for Congress, and many Democratic candidates pushing for changes within their party leadership, this election is anything but typical.

Join Bloomberg Government’s resident election guru, Greg Giroux, and editorial director, Loren Duggan, for the first installment of this two-part series looking ahead to November 6 and the implications for 2019 and the president’s agenda.

The second installment in this series will take place on Thursday, November 1 at 2:00pm and you can register for that event here.

The replay for the October 4th webinar is below. If you’d like a copy of the slide deck, please email bbg_gov@bgov.com.
