Senate 2018 Tag

The countdown begins. Will the Democrats take over the House? Will the GOP pick up more seats in the Senate? Will the Democrats sweep in the governor races? We will provide updates as they come in as many tight races on the east coast could provide some early clues as to who will come out on top and the tone of the 2020 presidential race.

The Huron Daily Tribune fired reporter Brenda Battel after she accidentally left an insulting voicemail for Michigan Republican Senate candidate John James. From The Daily Caller:

Today's the day! Election Day! Have you voted yet? Us at Legal Insurrection will keep this thread open all day to provide updates, analysis, and pictures of all the races across the nation.

Midterm elections are only a few weeks away so we're watching the polls closer each day. I found that polls for the Senate races in Missouri, Arizona, North Dakota, and Tennessee have the Republican candidates in the lead. Democrat incumbent Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill is only down a point, but Arizona Republican Rep. Martha McSally slightly raised her lead as she tries to take over retiring Sen. Jeff Flake's seat.
