A new Democratic House? Check. A narrowly-held Republican Senate? Check. A wildcard Republican President? Check. In 2019, the 116th session of Congress promises to be politically consequential with several new policy directions.

This week's "Party Politics" podcast focuses on what can happen on Capitol Hill with the new year and a new composition of Congress, which –among other factors— will be marked by the record number of women serving.

Hosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus preview the upcoming Congressional session, discuss the policy items on the agenda, the resulting political friction, and the implications for the 2020 presidential elections.
