Mississippi, Kentucky and Virginia are holding their elections today. These races will decide the next governors of Kentucky and Mississippi and the make-up of the Virginia legislature.
In Kentucky, Governor Matt Bevin faces a tough re-election bid against Democrat Andy Beshear.
The Republican controlled Mississippi House of Representatives might have to select the next governor if neither candidate can pass the state’s Jim Crow era election system.
Virginia democrats are fighting to flip control of both chambers of the general assembly.
The outcome of the races could shed light on how the U.S. is leaning in the middle of an impeachment inquiry and as it heads into a presidential election year.
