Blue Wave. Red Wave. Blue Tsunami. Flip this seat. Flip the House. Nancy Pelosi. Trump-Haters. Build the Wall. Red State Democrats. “Fake News.” It can all be so CONFUSING!  In this episode, Scott uses “plain talk” to explain some key terms, issues, and results from the November 2018 Midterm elections. The conversation gives a brief historical reference, plus discussions of races for the House of Representatives, Senate, governorships, with a closing focus on the political view from Southwest Virginia. Check out this voter resource, 

Word of the Day: Midterm: (noun) a test at the middle of a semester, or the elections in the middle of a presidential term.

Question of the Day: Is voting important? Is being an informed voter important?
