The 2018 midterm elections will usher in a sea change regardless of who holds the majority in the House or Senate when we wake up on Wednesday. Key retirements in both chambers ensure that the 116th Congress will look very different than the 115th. The sheer number of those not seeking reelection or retiring in the House means that there will be many new faces holding committee gavels next Congress. While there are fewer retirements in the Senate, the impact on committee changes will likely be greater.
With change often comes uncertainty and anxiety; those who are prepared and can adapt the quickest will be the most successful.
