re: Key Issues in Midterm Elections

Economic issues still have a big impact on elections and recent news has been good. We have got 18 quarters of growth, unemployment is down to 4.6 percent, gas prices are down, and the stock market is doing well. I think that is going to help the President’s numbers and it will certainly help Republicans.

The other driving issue that everyone is going to want to talk about is security -- border security, where immigration is concerned, and of course the situation in Iraq. So candidates just need to go home and talk about the work we have done that has affected national security, that has affected the economy and I think the voters are going to respond.
