WHILE WE'RE FOCUSING ON THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, LET'S NOT FORGET THAT THE CONGRESSIONAL RACES ARE JUST AS IMPORTANT IF WE WANT TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK. Today In The Congressional Races
Welcome to our newest feature here at Election Central -- a roundup of the latest news on a lot of those important down-ballot races.
The presidential race is obviously the biggest thing out there, but all across the country there are a lot of important elections going on that will collectively have an enormous effect on the agenda this country pursues and how effectively the next president will be able to govern.
In these roundups we hope to give you an idea of the big picture going on in those races -- not to mention the individual races themselves in all their quirky, dramatic and often brutally negative glory.
Look for the roundup twice every weekday, one at roughly 11 a.m. ET and one at 6 p.m. ET.
