WASHINGTON — The fashion industry so far appears to be voting Republican when it comes to the upcoming midterm Congressional elections in November.
Contributions from many of the industry’s largest political action committees to Republican candidates have outpaced those made to Democrats heading into the elections. Democrats currently hold a majority in the Senate, while Republicans have control of the House. Political experts generally feel that control of the Senate, where one-third of the seats are at stake, is in play, while the House should stay in GOP hands.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
