‘Blue Wave, Red Tide, Or Purple Haze?’ – a midterm conversation
The runup to the consequential 2018 midterm election has been fraught with ugly confrontations, nasty campaign ads, and a confirmation showdown that captured the nation’s attention. How could the state affect the national conversation? And what insights do the journalists who are covering the day-to-day politics on the ground have to share?
The New York Times, Voice of OC, and KPCC are teamed up to present an in-depth look at the 2018 midterm elections at the local, state, and federal level.
On Tuesday, October 30, KPCC political correspondent Mary Plummer joined New York Times L.A. bureau chief Adam Nagourney and Voice of OC publisher Norberto Santana Jr. to explore how California’s ballot measures and congressional races reflect—or reject—broader national themes. They also examined how this election could affect transportation and housing in Southern California.
This event is presented in collaboration with The New York Times and Voice of OC.
