Trade Reform Candidates Dominate in U.S. House and Senate Elections
Voters Voice a Mandate as Forty New Fair-Traders are Elected
WASHINGTON - In the biggest shift on any one policy issue from this election, candidates running on trade reform dominated races across the country, as voters elected forty new fair-trade challengers to the U.S. House and five new fair-trade challengers to the U.S. Senate. As a result, the alignment of the trade voting blocs at the start of the 111th Congress will look very different from past legislative sessions.
