Midterm Elections 2018: Who Holds Power in Congress?

For our midterm election post-mortem show we’ll spend the hour today speaking with three experts who have closely followed the races. First David Dayen of the Intercept will discuss who holds power in Congress and the states, the surprise wins and losses, and how ballot measures fared. Then, Jodi Jacobson of Rewire.news will examine how women played an essential role as candidates and voters this election and how the #MeToo movement and the Women’s March paved the way. Finally our news correspondent Arun Gupta joins us for a look at how progressives did on election night and how grassroots activism plays a role before and after the election. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
