|The consequences of today’s midterm elections will reverberate for years to come. Here’s why.
Midterms tend to be bad for the incumbent president’s party — and this election may not be any different.
Control of the House of Representatives is very much up for grabs, as Democrats are confronted by a serious challenge from the GOP. The Senate is split 50-50, and each party wants control of the upper chamber.
There’s also a bounty of gubernatorial elections, including races chock full of contenders for the 2024 presidential election and others that could reshape the number of Black governors holding office in the US.
Notably, whoever wins the governor race in key swing states will have control over the levers of power around elections. Also, with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, a number of these races will end up deciding the legality and availability of abortion in various states.
Insider will be closely monitoring all of this today, tonight, and through the final calls of the race. Follow our live coverage here.
