It's less than 2 weeks until Election Day. While voter turnout during midterm elections drops nearly 30% compared with presidential elections, that doesn't mean the stakes are not high this year. In fact, control of the US Senate is at stake. On November 4, Americans across the country will cast ballots for governor in 36 states, as well as 36 Senate races, and all 435 House races.
* Recent polls indicate that a majority of the public is feeling anxious about the economy and is frustrated with both political parties and their seeming inability to work together to break through Washington gridlock. John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times takes a closer look at some of the contradictions about the priorities for voters and the most important qualities they are looking for in congressional candidates this election cycle.
* Congress' poor track record of passing significant legislation means the nation's governors are playing an even more significant role in getting things done for their constituents. Dan Balz of The Washington Post examines a number of tight gubernatorial races which could be indicators of how Americans are feeling toward each political party and reveal possible trends for the future, especially for candidates considering a 2016 White House run.
* Jeanne Cummings of Bloomberg Politics reports on the rush of campaign money flowing in the final days before the midterm elections and tell us which political party is raising and spending the most money and how the funds are being spent. * The CDC issued new Ebola protocols for healthcare workers this week while the UD established new restrictions for anyone traveling from Ebola-affected countries. Travelers coming from West Africa are now required to enter the country through 1 of only 5 airports screening for the disease and must be monitored for the first 21 days after they arrive. Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics have the latest on the enhanced protections the government has established to protect Americans from the Ebola virus.
