Charles Franklin: An early outlook on the 2018 elections
The 2018 elections feature important Wisconsin elections for Governor and Senate. At the same time, the national elections will determine control of the House and Senate for the next two years. Some of the forces at work in these elections include presidential approval and economic conditions. Others depend on the candidates and the campaigns they wage, which we will not know for some time. We will discuss these forces, and what can be discerned from the elections of 2017, to gain perspective on the shape of the 2018 outcomes.
