has the midterms covered

November 2, 2010

After a long and bitter campaign, Americans voted in midterm elections that could sweep Democrats from power in Congress and slam the brakes on President Barack Obama’s legislative agenda.

Our midterm coverage has all the angles covered, with the latest breaking news and developments, as well as thoughtful insight and analysis.

In between reporting the results and implications, our White House team will be tweeting the latest insights from the nation’s capital and posting behind-the-headlines stories to Front Row Washington.

A live blog will deliver news updates from Reuters reporters on the ground, commentary from columnists James Pethokoukis, Bernd Debusmann, Joshua Spivak and Gregg Easterbrook, and analysis by Cliff Young of polling firm Ipsos. Look for frequent updates to that from around 7 pm ET.

And for a more concentrated view of specific state races, check out our interactive Twitter tracker. This real-time tool will aggregate tweets from candidates, commentators and local media from 15 key states.

Our rich multimedia coverage will feature video and pictures from the campaign trail to the voting booth, and our interactive factboxes highlight new faces and look ahead to possible outcomes.

We hope you find out coverage useful, insightful and (where appropriate) fun. And as always, we welcome  constructive comments.
