Post-midterm election coverage

The Republicans took control of the Senate during the midterms elections on Tuesday. You can see a map of the Senate election results here.

Locally, Democrat Brad Ashford defeated the longstanding, Republican incumbent Lee Terry in the race for the District 2 Congressional seat. This was the first time a Democrat has won this seat in 16 years. You can read parts of Congressman Ashford’s victory speech here.

The midterm election might have had a record low. However, states in which races for the Senate were competitive- such as New Hampshire and Colorado- inspired higher voter turnouts. You can listen to broadcast about the low voter turnout here.
