National media have plenty to say about the midterms. There will be a blue wave. Or maybe a red one. The results will either be a repudiation or an affirmation of the president.

We get it.

But how are local news organizations — whose newsrooms are largely based in these districts — covering the midterm elections?

We put together a list of local news orgs that are covering noteworthy Senate, Congressional and gubernatorial races across the country.

How’d we pick these races? We used FiveThirtyEight’s “classic” forecasts to eliminate Senate and governor races in which one candidate had a greater than 95 percent chance of winning. For Congressional candidates, we pulled all races in which FiveThirtyEight’s “classic” forecast projects a party flip or a toss-up.

A caveat: We did our best to highlight a variety. If you know a news organization that deserves to be listed, let us know.
