Democratic House Caucus Chairman Bob Damron and Republican state Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington of Fort Wright were in the cn|2 studio to explain the strategies for their parties heading into the last three weeks of campaigning for state House seats.
Democrats are firmly in control of the chamber with 65 seats compared to 35 for the Republicans. But there are more than 50 seats that are being contested this fall — well over the number from recent elections.
See what both Damron and Edgington say about their expectations for the outcome of the races and what forces and issues are shaping the campaign season:
