Ravi and Rikki give their deeper reactions to the 2022 midterms, setting out what we know vs. what’s still up in the air, which issues drove voters, how states like Pennsylvania surprised us, the importance of split-ticket voters, and what comes next for both Democrats and Republicans, including the stage now set for a 2024 showdown between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump.
