Podcast overview

While the country watches the January 5 Georgia run-off elections for the two remaining Senate seats, other dates—including the January 3 swearing in of new Senators and the January 20 inauguration—may be relevant when examining who controls the Senate and what that means for governing. John Gimigliano, Carol Kulish, and Jennifer Gray discuss possible implications of unclear control in the short term, such as additional appointments by the former Administration, deferred committee chair assignments, and even the final locations of Senators’ offices, and remind us that, even after the dust settles on the Georgia run-offs, it might not be completely settled.
