An El Salvador news article written in Spanish examined the recent midterm losses for the Democratic Party and the relationship with Hillary Clinton’s 2016 potential presidential candidacy.

Anthony Corrado, professor of government at Colby, noted that a Congress controlled by Republican men is a perfect political opponent to campaign against if you’re Hillary Clinton. According to Corrado, Clinton now has grounds to argue that any government inaction is due to the Republican majority in Congress, which would present Clinton with a way to attack an inoperative government without having to distance herself from President Obama and his base of minority and youth support. Corrado noted that this year’s midterm elections showed how crucial it is for Democrats to mobilize youth, minorities, and women, adding that Clinton’s greatest challenge will be winning the more progressive and younger Democrats without losing those at the center.
