On today's Daily Standard podcast, chief elections analyst David Byler takes us on a guided tour of the GOP's strong Senate map for the midterm elections—now less than three weeks away!—while reporter Andrew Egger takes a deeper dive into one of the year's most hotly contested races: Josh Hawley vs. Claire McCaskill in Missouri, where rabble-rouser James O'Keefe has been making a surprise splash.

Editor's note: The latter half of the podcast has some microphone discrepancies, but is clear for the purposes of listening.
