There’s a lot of speculation about the chances of Republicans taking the Senate in the November 4 midterm elections. In The New Yorker, John Cassidy recently lamented:
Just in case you haven’t you haven’t had enough bad news, here’s a bit more from the domestic-politics desk. With less than a hundred days until the midterm elections, the Republicans now have a very realistic chance of retaking the Senate, which would leave them in over-all control of Capitol Hill for the next two years.
The Washington Post echoes this prediction, reporting a 63 percent chance that the Republicans will be in the majority after the November elections.
Over the next several days, The Agenda will provide information and analysis on the candidates and key issues as well as recent polling data for these close races.
