The November General Election is growing closer and the focus nationally will be on the mid-term U.S. House and Senate races around the country. Predictions are around the country that Democrats could take Congress in the mid-term races. Congressman John Shimkus says it’s certainly expected the Democrats will take seats, but he says they’ll just have to see how many.
Shimkus himself is facing a challenge from Democrat Kevin Gaither in the November 6th race. Shimkus is running for a 12th term in Congress.
