This year Americans will not only elect the next president, but a vote is also held to fill one-third of the Senate seats. Currently, Republicans have a narrow majority in the Senate. Will they be able to hold control of the chamber? What are the battleground states in the Senate race? Are there any potential Senators that might get knocked out in the primary process? In this podcast episode, David Deißner, Executive Director at Atlantik-Brücke, and Tyson Barker, Deputy Executive Director and Fellow at Aspen Germany, talk with Juliane Schäuble, U.S. correspondent at Tagesspiegel, and Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson, KCRW Berlin’s Program Director, about the Senate races, the candidates, and underlying dynamics. They will also discuss how the Senate races play into the presidential election and Biden’s selection of a running mate.
