Voters decide midterm elections tomorrow.  

 

Democrats and Republicans are fighting for control of both congress and statehouses across the country not to mention key executive elective offices that play a role in how legislative and congressional districts are drawn.

 

In 2016, Ohio went for Donald Trump by a comfortable eight-plus percentage points. But two years later, polls suggest that most statewide races in Ohio are too close to call.

 

In fact, midterm elections are seen as a referendum on the person who sits in the oval office. We’ll talk about what matters with seasoned national journalists today.

Guests:

  • Jack Torry, DC bureau chief, the Columbus Dispatch
  • Ron Elving, Senior Editor and Correspondent on the Washington Desk for NPR News
  • Herb Asher, political science professor, The Ohio State University
