Today's Roundtable Panel took place before a live studio audience at The Linda WAMC's Performing Arts Studio in downtown Albany.

Today's panelists: WAMC’s Alan Chartock, Associate Editor of The Times Union Mike Spain, Director of the Journalism Program at the University at Albany, Rosemary Armao, Political Consultant Libby Post, Communications Consultant Theresa Bourgeois, author and activist Barbara Smith and Times Union Columnist Chris Churchill. 

The Tang Teaching Museum on the campus of Skidmore College in Saratoga will be having an Election Night Extravaganza - a full evening of dialogue, activities, and refreshments with live coverage of the voting results. 

The event is co-sponsored by Skidmore College clubs Democracy Matters, College Republicans, and College Democrats. This event is part of the exhibition A More Perfect Union and is free and open to the public which runs from 7 pm to midnight.

To tell us more – we welcome Ian Berry, Dayton Director of the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, and curator of A More Perfect Union. Minita Sanghvi, an assistant professor in Management and Business at Skidmore College who specializes in political marketing and issues of gender and power. And Ron Seyb is here, an associate professor of political science, who specializes in the American presidency, the U.S. Congress, political psychology, and the media and politics.

    Republicans were ascendant in the midterms.

But in today’s Congressional Corner, Union College political science professor Brad Hays tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock that Democrats are down but not out.
