What are US midterm elections and when should they be held?
Joe Biden urged Americans to protect democracy at the polls in the midterm elections as he called for an end to political violence in a speech on Wednesday.
The president compared the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband to the January 6 attack by a pro-Trump mob on the US Capitol.
And he criticized the one-term president for refusing to accept the results of the 2020 election and for putting “faith in himself above faith in the Constitution.”
Earlier, as former President Barack Obama continues his tour of states critical to this year’s midterm elections, Georgia’s GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker said he would put his resume against Mr. Obama “any time of the day. ” – this despite many examples of Mr. Walker lying about his work and educational history/
Mr Obama gave a speech in Georgia earlier this week and will campaign alongside Joe Biden this weekend.
Meanwhile, a new poll in Pennsylvania has struck fear into the hearts of Democrats with news that Senate candidate John Fetterman apparently has a one-point lead over Republican Mehmet Oz — this as the party’s leads in other states decrease or do not increase stubbornly.
With the chances of Democrats holding the House still looking slim, control of the US Senate hangs in the balance. Among the states where the parties remain essentially tied are the race for a GOP seat in Ohio and a Democratic hold in Nevada, although incumbent Sens. Mark Kelly of Arizona and Raphael Warnock appear to hold a slight lead.
Voices: Five Senate seats most likely to flip in midterm elections
The independentEric Garcia writes:
We are officially seven days from Election Day! Celebrate or panic as you wish.
Much has changed since our previous ranking of the Senate seats most likely to flip, with some candidates advancing while other races have strengthened. One contest that is no longer on the list is North Carolina, thanks in large part to an onslaught of ads by Republican groups that helped Rep. Ted Budd edge Cheri Beasley, and in which Democrats have failed to match.
Meanwhile, things are heating up in Arizona, which returns to our rankings. And while Rep. Tim Ryan put up an impressive fight against Republican JD Vance during their debates, it appears that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s money invasion gave the embattled GOP candidate the atmospherics he needed to pull away.
With that, here is your final ranking of the top five Senate seats most likely to flip. Call us accordingly.
