BALANCE OF POWER: U.S. Midterm Elections

Published

on

The Nov. 8 races are weighted down by major economic turmoil and rampant crime

On Tuesday Americans will head to the polls to cast their votes and make their voices heard in deciding a specific direction for the country.

The November 8th midterm elections will decide control of both the House and Senate—and as usual is often decided by just a few seats which will change the balance of power.

Important races in battleground states like Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania will decide what gets done in Washington D.C. over the next two years.

This election year is weighted down by major economic turmoil and rampant crime.

In the final hours before the election, U.S. President Joe Biden joined former President Barack Obama on the campaign trail for Democratic candidates.

“The power of America is in your hands—it really is,” Biden said.

In the campaign’s final weeks, momentum has been on the side of the GOP.

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump held a dueling rally in support of Republican candidates while slamming what Democrats have accomplished over the past two years.

“Under Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the radical Democrat Congress your Commonwealth is being totally destroyed, our country is being destroyed,” Trump said.

“Biden and the far-left lunatics are waging war on Pennsylvania energy, crushing Pennsylvania jobs, gutting Pennsylvania community and strangling Pennsylvania families,” he said.
