Backlash Midterms

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

A Washington Post reporter will update us on the lawsuit filed by family of the victims of the attack on the USS Cole. Then... A new president often triggers a midterm in which the opposition party gains power and flips one of the houses in Congress. But what happens after that? Does this re-balancing freeze all policy, or can people work together in Washington? We'll examine the record with W&M government professor C. Lawrence Evans. And Dave Ress of the Daily Press has the early word on what will happen in the 2019 state elections. Give us a call at 1-800-940-2240 or 757-440-2665.

Today's Guests:
