FROM THIS EPISODE

The Gallup Poll says the big question tomorrow is not whether the Republicans will take over the Congress, but by how much. That's based on a national sample. But midterm elections are local, and the decisive factor is going to be who really turns out and where. We hear about major races from Pennsylvania to Florida to Nevada and California.  Also, the latest on the cargo plane bomb plot.

We hear reports on important races in regions across the country.

We hear about the bombs, airport security and the politics of Yemen.
