Polls indicate the very close presidential election will likely be decided by a number of toss-up states. President Barack Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney focused on these toss-up states over the weekend. The toss-up states include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. Control of the U.S. Senate will be determined by a number of close races including those in Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. A number of political analysts believe the Democrats will keep control of a closely divided Senate. Republicans are expected to maintain control of the House of Representatives. Next week’s column will analyze Tuesday’s election results and the impact they could have on agriculture.
