WASHINGTON — Midterms typically help the party out of power in Washington, but Tuesday’s election expanded Republicans’ majority in the Senate —at the same Democrats took control of the House by a substantial margin.

McClatchy national political correspondents Alex Roarty, who covers the Democratic Party, and Katie Glueck, who covers the GOP, join a special post-election episode of Beyond the Bubble to break down the post-election finger-pointing going on behind closed doors in Washington.

Next week Beyond the Bubble will take a post-election break. In its place, a McClatchy original mini-series Democrats’ Way Back will be available for download on SoundCloud, iTunes and Stitcher.

Host Alex Roarty will explore what’s ahead for the Democratic Party in the era of President Donald Trump, starting with a conversation with Delaware activist and former Senate candidate Kerri Evelyn Harris. The first of five 25-minute episodes will go live Monday, November, 12.

McClatchy’s Beyond the Bubble show is produced by Jordan-Marie Smith and Davin Coburn. Alex Roarty and Katie Glueck, national political correspondents for McClatchy, and Andrea Drusch, Washington correspondent for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, recorded this episode at McClatchy’s Washington Bureau, November 7, 2018.
