"Midterms are such a fascinating way for Americans to engage. Whether it's in the middle of the biggest city or the smallest town, we want to have open, honest, fair conversations with viewers, voters, and candidates, now and for years to come," Glor said. "We can't wait to hit the road."

Expanded coverage starts Tuesday, October 9 with Glor anchoring from Phoenix, Arizona. He will later head to Texas, Missouri and Florida.
