With Republicans taking the majority in the U.S. House and Democrats controlling the Senate following the midterm elections, Danielle Vinson, a Furman University professor of politics and international affairs, goes on set at FOX Carolina to offer her views on what might happen next. She told anchor Justin Dougherty she didn’t anticipate that much legislation will be passed in the interim. Vinson weighed in on the runoff in Georgia and the extra “cushion” an additional member to the Democratic-controlled Senate would provide. She also spoke about how election denial and issues like abortion impacted overall voter turnout.

Vinson is a 1989 Furman alumna (political science and English). She received her master’s and doctorate in political science from Duke University.
