Brookings Mountain West
Brookings Mountain West, in partnership with CSUN, was pleased to present part one of a two-part analysis on the 2018 Midterm elections. The 2018 Midterms included elections for all 435 members of the House of Representatives, including four seats in Nevada. In the U.S. Senate, 34 seats were up for election, including one seat in Nevada. Across the United States, 36 states elected governors, including the State of Nevada. The Democratic Party sought to flip a minimum of 24 seats to become the majority party in House and 2 seats to become the majority party in the Senate. Two Mountain West states, Nevada and Arizona, presented the best opportunity for the Democratic Party to flip seats in the U.S. Senate. Republicans will look to flip seats in 10 states that Donald Trump won in 2016. Panelists discussed the policy issues and voting trends that were likely to influence the outcome of the 2018 midterm elections.
