Political Junkie 2018 Midterm Election Special

Pre-Election Day Special Now Airing!

Members of Congress and their challengers prepare to face the voters this fall, a midterm election that may depend on one question: “Just how much do you support (or oppose) President Trump?”

Join Political Junkie Ken Rudin and an all-star lineup of political reporters, commentators and special guests for a full hour of analysis of the 2018 midterms.

Will Democrats motivate their voters to help them take control of Congress? Or will a strong economy upend the historical norm and allow the GOP to hold onto power? We’ll delve into the biggest storylines from this year’s House, Senate, and gubernatorial races … and consider how this referendum on Trump’s presidency will impact his next two years in office.

Ken’s guests include:

  • Vin Weber, Republican strategist, former Congressman (R-Minnesota)
  • Anna Greenberg, Democratic strategist, managing partner at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner
  • Kelly Dittmar, assistant research professor at the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University
  • Joshua Douglas, professor of election law and voting rights at the University of Kentucky
  • Greg Giroux, elections reporter at Bloomberg
