What is at stake in the 2018 Midterm Elections?


On 6 November 2018, U.S. Americans will get to vote for Congress. Will homeland security, specifically the recent negotiations with North Korea, the abandonment of the nuclear deal with Iran, and the challenging and nontransparent relationship with Russia dominate the elections? Or will domestic issues like gun control and the current debate on immigration influence the outcome? In her talk, Joyce Mushaben will identify and focus on issues likely to be of importance for voters in these midterm elections.
