Hi Reddit! I’m Lisa Desjardins of the PBS NewsHour. AMA about the 2018 midterms!
Hi everyone! I’m PBS NewsHour congressional correspondent (and elections nerd) Lisa Desjardins. I spent the last eight months following almost 100 races. You may have seen me breaking down how they turned out during our election special on Tuesday night. I also reported on Conor Lamb’s special election victory in March, which set off full-blown Democratic hopes for a wave election, and, later, Virginia Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart’s views on white nationalists. We learned a lot on Tuesday night, and I am here to take your questions about what it all means for Congress, our lives and the next presidential election.
UPDATE 11:35 a.m. Eastern:
THANK YOU for all of your great questions, I'm sorry that I can't keep answering. Please follow me on Twitter at @LisaDNews (I do read and respond when at all possible).
And please consider learning more about Chester Arthur. He was a good president and so underappreciated.
