The 2018 United States midterm elections were held on November 6, 2018, in the middle of Laura Montez's first term as President of the United States. Elections were held for all 435 seats of the House of Representatives, representing the 50 states. Elections were also held for Senators elected in 2012. The winners of this election served in the 116th United States Congress.
Background[edit | edit source]
In the hotly contested 2016 election, Selina Meyer and Bill O'Brien were in an electoral tie, leading to a vote in the House, which neither one of them received a majority of the votes. The vote then went to the Senate, where Laura Montez was elected President by a swing vote cast by Vice President Andrew Doyle.
House elections[edit | edit source]
Gubernatorial elections[edit | edit source]
The states of Ohio, Minnesota, and Nevada are some of those that held gubernatorial elections in 2018. Governor Hoyt Steptoe ran against Buddy Calhoun in Nevada, before Calhoun withdrew his candidacy in February 2018, but later reneged his withdrawal and went on to win the race.
In the state of Minnesota, Danny Chung was ineligible to seek a third term.
