With Two weeks Left, a Look at Four Wildcard Senate Races

Hosted by

President Bush is not promising to "stay the course" any more, but changing the message won't make bad news sound any better. Republican Senator Lindsay Graham said today that Iraq is "on the verge of chaos," and that's the main reason his party may lose its majority in the Senate. Exactly two weeks from election day, Democrats have their eyes on a prize that was thought to be out of their reach just a few weeks ago. Political handicappers are focused on Missouri and Virginia, where Republican incumbents are in trouble; and Tennessee, where Republican Bill Frist is stepping down.  Democrats have to win at least two, but it won't be easy. We get reports from all three states, and from New Jersey, where an incumbent Democrat just might lose.
