Post-Election Agendas45:43


On the eve of historic midterm elections, we look at agendas in Washington and the country’s future after the vote.


So, the voting’s tomorrow, all over the country. Democrats are fighting to hang on. Republicans are fighting to take over. The House is deeply in play. The Senate, maybe.

So what happens if Republicans sweep the midterms? What happens if Democrats keep a grip?

The ground is shifting. Agendas are already being crafted and re-crafted — on Capitol Hill, and at the White House — on taxes, health care, economic policy, jobs. Outcomes will have consequences.

We look at a range of election day outcomes, and what they could mean for action – or gridlock – in Washington.
