This is the last edition before the November 8th midterm election, so we are using a different format.
Steve Gordon‘s Heard on the Hill column looks at the upcoming senatorial and congressional elections from the perspective of a former Republican political consultant and now managing partner of Total Spectrum. Patrick Robertson’s Washington Whispers column looks at the upcoming elections from his perspective as a Democratic attorney and lobbyist who served as deputy chief of staff for former Senator Jay Rockefeller and managed the 2008 Rockefeller for Senate reelection campaign.
We have included an encore presentation of Congressman Erik Paulsen’s June 1st interview of Charlie Cook for Total Spectrum Spotlight. Steve was introduced to Charlie in 1986, two years after he founded the independent and non-partisan Cook Political Report. He’s the dean of political journalism – and for a good reason. This interview still gets viewers and generates compliments, so we hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch it – or watch it again. It will be time well spent.
The Total Spectrum team is working now to bring you a post-election analysis as well as an introduction to the lame duck session and the next Congress. More on that special edition soon.
