About this event
Americans vote on November 8 and the world is watching. With a slim eight-seat hold on the House of Representatives and an evenly divided Senate, Democrats' control of Congress is razor thin heading into the 2022 midterm elections. Current polls favor Republicans to retake the House, with the Senate too close to call. Multiple state elections for governor, secretary of state, and state legislatures could determine the conduct of the 2024 presidential election.
In the wake of November's outcome, what can President Biden accomplish with two more years in his term? What do Republicans plan to do with their new power if they retake one or both chambers of Congress? What are the implications for US economic policy, relations with other nations, and the future of American democracy? What races for Congress and at the state level are most important? Please join us to answer these questions and more as we discuss party agendas and preview the possible implications of the 2022 midterm elections.
