Many experts say the upcoming midterm elections could mark an almost historic changeover in seats in the house and congress. The Tea Party continues to influence campaigns and many new faces are appearing on political signs around the region. Political attack ads are as virulent as ever and, here in Charlotte, there is a very contentious race among district court judge candidates and voters will elect the first new District Attorney in over thirty years. We have assembled three political experts to talk about the upcoming election and the changes it could bring.
