On today’s episode, I was joined by Professor Adam Myers to discuss the 2020 races for the US Senate. With more Republican Senate seats at stake in this election, Democrats have a good opportunity to take enough seats from Republican incumbents to gain a Senate majority. If Joe Biden wins the presidency and, as expected the Democrats maintain their majority in the House of Representatives, we could see unified Democratic government in January. For this to happen, however, the election has to go the Democrat’s way in a number of key Senate races. In this episode, Myers takes through all the close races and gives his views on how things are likely to go on November 3rd. We also take some time to discuss the first presidential debate and today’s startling news about President Trump’s positive COVID-19 test and its implications for the campaign.
