CQ Press's Guide to the 2010 Midterm Elections

July 2010 | CQ Press

Nearly two years after the country was electrified by President Barack Obama’s presidential run, voters are preparing once again for what is shaping up to be a historic election year. This helpful guide compares the upcoming 2010 midterm elections to those of past years and examines the lessons learned from surprising results in recent off-year elections held in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii. Giroux provides insight as to how issues like the state of the economy and the passage of health care reform are affecting incumbents, including discussion of the roles both party committees and outside groups are playing in the campaigns.

With a rundown of key races at the House, Senate, and gubernatorial levels, this handy guide explores why the midterm elections likely signal major changes in the balance of power in Congress and what they mean for the fast-approaching presidential election of 2012.
