Key Senate Races Keep Republican Hopes Alive

Hosted by

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.
