It has been a banner year for President Donald Trump, but the 2018 midterm elections are still a few weeks away.
That’s because the Republican Party will hold its convention in Cleveland, Ohio, on November 6 and Trump will be the party’s presidential nominee.
In the months ahead, a number of issues will likely be front and center.
And, as the presidential campaign heats up, a new round of scandals is expected to emerge in the months leading up to Election Day.
Here’s what to expect from the 2018 midterms.
In 2019, the GOP will control the White House, Senate and House of Representatives.
There’s no clear indication yet of how the party will proceed from here.
Republicans have a strong majority in both houses of Congress, but with only a 50-50 chance of winning the House, they’re also facing a formidable primary challenge from a relatively unknown Democrat, Representative Brad Sherman of California.
Sherman is considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate.
Sherman, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, is expected by some to be among the candidates Trump will target in the 2020 primaries.
In other cases, Republicans have not ruled out supporting candidates they have already endorsed in the primary.
Some have suggested they will support Republicans like Sens.
Rob Portman of Ohio and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, as well as moderate senators like Mark Kirk of Illinois and Joe Manchin of West Tennessee.
In addition, the party is considering candidates who have already garnered some support from the party establishment.
For example, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been among the more outspoken voices against Trump, and he’s considered a candidate who could win over some moderate Republicans.
Trump has also faced criticism from Republicans in the Senate, who have called on him to step down if the party does not coalesce around a nominee who can win over the party base.
The Republican Party’s control of Congress and White House will likely remain unchanged.
But the GOP has been looking to consolidate power, and the party has not always been a reliable electoral force.
For instance, the 2018 GOP primary was an extremely competitive contest.
According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal tracking poll, just 15 percent of Republican voters say they’re likely to vote for Trump, while just over a third say they will not.
In contrast, just under half of Democratic voters say that they will vote for Clinton, while a similar share of Republicans say the same.
But Democrats have also been on the rise since the 2020 primary, and they are expected to continue to gain ground.
In 2020, Clinton leads Trump by a wide margin, and her lead is likely to grow.
And she is also poised to carry the Senate.
But her campaign is under fire from some Democrats, who are calling for her to be forced to release more information about her use of a private email server, which she has repeatedly denied.
And a growing number of Republicans have called for her impeachment, while some Democrats have called her an embarrassment to American democracy.
Trump’s election will not be an easy task for the GOP.
It will be difficult to flip the Senate in a state that has not voted for a Republican president since George H.W. Bush in 1988.
But it is also unlikely to happen.
That is because the Republicans hold a 60-seat majority in the House and the Senate — the chamber that must approve any legislation to advance a president’s agenda.
Democrats are also likely to be more successful in the 2018 election.
The 2018 election will be decided by just one seat.
But there are a number swing districts in the midterms that are more competitive, and those races are likely to favor Democrats.
For the 2018 Midterms, the race in the Rust Belt will be particularly important, especially in Pennsylvania.
Tom Wolf will be a strong candidate for a second term, and his state has been trending blue since the 2016 election.
In 2018, Trump won by 11 percentage points over Democrat Katie McGinty in the state, according to exit polls.
The state is a key battleground for the Democrats in 2020.
Democrats have long considered Pennsylvania a must-win for the party, as Pennsylvania is the home state of House Speaker Tom DeLay, the top House Republican, and a key vote-counter for the Democratic president.
But that’s not to say the state is in play for Democrats in 2018.
It is a reliably blue state that is solidly Democratic, and Democrats have won it by more than 5 percentage points in every election since 1972.
There are a few more races that are less likely to have any effect on the presidential election, and there are several races in the South and the Midwest that could affect the election.
