last updated on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 in Public Policy Network

By now, you’ve probably read the headlines, watched the clips, and heard a fair amount from those on social media on the midterm elections. Let’s take a step back and look at the results without any commentary. This is not meant to be an all-encompassing analysis but a short review of how the results will affect our district. We will also take a look at what is happening in DC during this lame duck session.

Election Results

Almost all of the contest have been announced and Representatives-elect and Senators-elect are swiftly putting together their DC offices. Below you will find a full list of Representatives and Senators who will represent our district in the 116th US Congress. We will continue our relationships with those who were re-elected and look forward to building new relationships with those who won for the first time.
