As we look ahead to 2014 midterm elections, there are key races we wil focus on tonight. Governor Rick Perry announced recently that he wil not seek an unprecedented fourth term in Texas. Which Democrat or Republican do you think will be the next Governor of Texas?

The GOP continues to run on empty as numerous candidates either choosing to retire(a.k.a. abandoning a sinking ship) or because of term limits. More Republicans will not seek re-election in this election cycle than Democrats.

Former Governor Mark Sanford(R-South Carolina) was successful in his political comeback and was elected to Congress. Will the same good fortune happen for Democrats Anthony Weiner(currently running for NYC Mayor) and Eliot Spitzer(currently running for NYC Comptroller). We all know karma can be a bitch but, will Weiner and Spitzer be blessed with good karma?

All that and a handful of other key races in the 435 member House of Representatives are the focus.

Join political pundits and social commentators, Dave Franklin and Lori Picarella, as they break it down for you and take your calls in this half hour on the various scenarios that might play out in the 2014 midterm elections.

We'll be expanding to the 60-90 minute format in September and looking forward to hearing a lot more from you friends and listeners. Thanks for sharing throughout social media and by word of mouth. We are humbled by your loyalty and dedication to the blog and this radio show. The blog will be expanding soon as well so stay tuned! We're going bigger and we will be better.
