The U.S. mid-term elections hold the potential to shift the balance of power in Washington, DC. Polls indicate that Republicans are likely to add to their majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and potentially retake control of the U.S. Senate. This shift raises interesting questions about the political and policy dynamic for the last two years of the Obama Administration. How would Republican control of Capitol Hill reshape the political dynamics in Washington, DC? Would the new political realities lead to a greater degree of cooperation or increased gridlock? How would a shift in power impact key priorities for policy towards East Asia such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the rebalance to Asia? Please join KEI for an important discussion of the political and policy implications of the U.S. mid-term elections.
