The Week Ahead for Mar. 4, 2019
A pair of governors jumped into the 2020 presidential race, but can they find traction with so many other, better known candidates in the mix? The Senate is positioned to reject President Trump’s national emergency at the border. They will also vote on four nominees this week. The House has a busy week as they will vote on H.R. 1, the Democrats’ good government bill. Meanwhile, the House Judiciary committee is continuing its investigation into Trump, and on Wednesday they will go behind closed doors to listen to Michael Cohen testify. The president will welcome 2018 FCS Division I Football National Champions, the North Dakota Bison, to the White House. Trump also has lunch with Mike Pence and addresses the National Association of Attorneys General. On Wednesday, he will attend the first meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting.

2018 Midterms: What We Still Don’t Know, Part 2

Top Counties to Watch on Election Night 2018 (Part 1)
Election night can be overwhelming. Polls close at different times across the country, and in some cases, different times across the same state. With Senate, gubernatorial, House, and state legislative race results coming in simultaneously, it can be difficult to know where to look for early indicators of how the night may go.
AR Intel went state by state and highlighted the most important counties to watch in each key Senate state. We’ve broken down the results into two posts – the first below, posted on Monday, and the second will go up Tuesday morning.

Kyrsten Sinema’s Absolutely Miserable Week
Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is running to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate, but her hopes hit a bit of a snag late last week when a series of videos surfaced in which she criticized her home state repeatedly at public events.
The bad news for Sinema began with a poll showing her trailing her Republican opponent, Martha McSally, the first female Air Force pilot to fly in combat. Complicating matters further for Sinema, in addition to videos of her criticizing Arizona, multiple media outlets reported on emails and other written remarks she made in the early 2000s about the Iraq war. Sinema’s time as an anti-war activist likely isn’t sitting well with the more than 550,000 veterans who call Arizona home.

Senate Poll Round-Up: Republicans Ahead in AZ, NV, TN, Tied in MO
It’s been another week and another flurry of Senate polls! By far Arizona was the most polled state this week with four newly released polls in the past seven days. The most recent poll shows Republican Martha McSally leading her Democrat opponent.
Republicans are also leading in contests in Nevada, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Texas. And keep a close eye on Missouri – the latest poll, conducted by Fox News, shows Republican Josh Hawley tied with Democrat Claire McCaskill. But the RealClearPolitics polling average now favors Hawley, meaning that the contest could be trending in the Republican’s direction.
