FROM THIS EPISODE

Democrat Barbara Boxer's trying for a fourth term in the US Senate. Republican Carly Fiorina says that's too long. California's a blue state, but polls show the race between the liberal incumbent and her conservative challenger is virtually tied. Last night, in their first debate, they offered voters stark choices on the environment, women's rights, immigration, jobs and the economy. It's a contest that could make a difference in which party controls the Upper House of Congress. We hear analysis of some crucial exchanges. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Abbas and Netanyahu are together again for the first time in almost two years. How long will it last? What's the role of Iran? How great is the risk for Obama?
