Do the PA Congressional Results suggest a Democratic “Wave Election” – or a “Tsunami”?

A Democrat was elected to congress this week in a district that Donald Trump carried by 21% in 2016. Democrats have performed almost as well in other off-cycle special elections. What does this tell us about what to expect about who is likely to control congress after the 2018 elections?

Two of the best political minds in the political business join the Think Tank this week to shed light on the subject.

Rick DeGraw and Chuck Coughlin have run numerous campaigns for Democratic and Republican candidates for statewide offices in Arizona for many years. And, yes, they’ve faced off against each other more than once.  But when we talk strategy (rather than policy), they usually agree. No surprise to me — they are both pros looking at the same data.

Insider insights into our politics in this week’s Think Tank.  KTAR 92.3Fm Sunday 5-6pm. Reruns 9-10pm
