NEW YORK – November 4, 2022 – The Emmy® nominated docuseries THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE GREATEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTH continues its seventh season with a behind-the-scenes look at the final days of a bitterly contested midterm election.


Hosts John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon and Jennifer Palmieri, are joined by guest host Paola Ramos – host and correspondent for VICE News, contributor to MSNBC, and author of Finding Latinx: In Search of the Voices Redefining Latino Identity as they travel the country documenting a political environment full of warning signs for the Democratic Party. With sustained economic headwinds and daunting historical trends for the party in power, the GOP is on offense as Democrats attempt to hold onto control of both houses of Congress.

Episode includes:


  • Behind-the-scenes coverage of former President Barack Obama's event in Nevada, rallying Democrats as they try to defend a critical Senate seat.
  • Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan on her campaign for re-election, the endorsement by Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, and what she believes is on the line this year.
  • Republican Rep. Mayra Flores of Texas, on why she believes her party's message is increasingly resonating with Latino voters.
  • Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul of New York, who finds herself in a surprisingly competitive race in a reliably blue state.
