Tonight on The Independents: Midterm Madness, With Veronique de Rugy, Stephen Hayes, Guy Benson, Richard Fowler, and More!


Tonight's theme episode of The Independents (Fox Business Network, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT, with re-airs three and five hours later) starts from the premise that the upcoming congressional midterm vote is a "Seinfeld election"—i.e., an election about nothing. Trying gamely to protest to the contrary are a host of partisans: Party Panelists Guy Benson (Townhall Political Editor) and Richard Fowler ("Progressive Messaging Expert and all around good guy"), plus the DNC's Michael Czin and the RNC's Kirsten Kukowski.


Thankfully unencumbered with such affiliations is our own beloved Reason columnist Veronique de Rugy, who will talk about which combinations of partisan control over various chunks of the federal government lead to the least worst increases in spending. Breaking down the dizzying number of possibilities in the Senate is Fox News Channel Digital Politics Editor Chris Stirewalt. Assessing the role (and non-role) of foreign policy in this election is Weekly Standard Senior Writer Stephen Hayes. Kennedy will stick her microphone into the determined apathy and ignorance of New Yorkers and tourists, and the co-hosts will enjoy some of the worst campaign ads of this latest dreary cycle.
