California's vote often doesn't have an impact on national elections. It's a known commodity in the general election, particularly as it's gotten increasingly Democratic. But this upcoming midterm election is shaping up to be different. Republicans are so on the ropes in the state, and President Donald Trump is so unpopular here, that something unusual is happening.

Congressional seats that were once solidly Republican just four years ago are all of a sudden up for grabs. Nationally, Democrats are eying big gains that could win the party a majority in the House of Representatives, breaking Republican control in Washington. Their path to victory runs through California.

Get a sneak-peak of this podcast hosted by Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford, which will follow some of these tight California races that could determine who gets the Keys To The House.
