The mid-term U.S. congressional elections are just one week away.
On November 5, voters will elect 435 members of the House of Representatives in where the Republicans are now the majority.
In the Senate, Democrats enjoy a slim majority by one seat. This year, 34 of the 100 Senate seats are to be contested.
Both parties are vying to get full control of the Congress as a whole. However, foreign policy plays an unusually strong role in this year’s campaign and the usual domestic issues might not make a difference in the outcome.
