Key Senate Races Keep Republican Hopes Alive With less than a month until Election Day, Republicans might well take over the Congress and Democrats are by no means certain of holding on to the Senate. We look at Wisconsin, where the Senate’s most liberal member is no longer counting on re-election; West Virginia, which hasn’t elected a Republican to the Senate since 1958; and Connecticut, where a popular Attorney General is having trouble with a woman who made her name with professional wrestling. We hear about jobs and the economy, the President’s unpopularity, anti-incumbent sentiment and a pink marble driveway in Florida.
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences. On the second half of the program, we hear about cuts in Obama-Era civil rights programs called for by the Trump Administration's first budget plan.

The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness.
