It can no longer be said that being Irish or Irish American will cement your affiliation to one political party  - What way are you voting on November 6, 2018?

As the US takes to the polls today, November 6, for the midterm elections, interest from Ireland is also peaked. In particular, to see whether Irish names like O'Rourke will shine through in Texas or whether the staunch supporter of Irish unity Congressman Peter King will ever be ousted in New York.
