Questions Abound as Parties Vie for Senate Majority (Podcast)

Jessica Taylor, the Senate and governors editor of the Cook Political Report with Amy Walter, joined Bloomberg Government’s Kyle Trygstad and Greg Giroux on the latest episode of Downballot Counts to discuss the fight for the Senate majority.

Taylor went through the questions that still remain on the map, including candidates and incumbents who still haven’t announced their intentions. And she explained her race ratings, which highlight the nine competitive Senate contests and illustrate how tight the battle for control of the currently 50-50 chamber could be in November 2022.

She also discussed her role as a senior author of the 2022 Almanac of American Politics, the biennial reference book celebrating its 50th anniversary and being released this month.
