NAHB CEO and Chief Lobbyist Share Election Predictions
In the most recent episode of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Podcast, Housing Developments, NAHB CEO Jerry Howard and Chief Lobbyist Jim Tobin discuss the possible results of the upcoming midterm elections.
Tobin and Howard first discussed which states could flip this year from blue to red for the House of Representatives. Connecticut, New York, and a number of traditionally blue states in the northeast are potentially up for grabs from Republicans.
Most of the South is expected to stay red this midterm election, as is typical. On the other hand, Howard and Tobin pointed out that in the Midwest, there is expected to be a large blue overturn. There were a number of reasons provided, one being that many current Republican candidates in that area have been in power for a very long time.
