Whitman, Brown and Latino Voters in Fresno

Hosted by

Saturday's Spanish-language television debate in Fresno turned into a rumble about Meg Whitman's undocumented housekeeper and Jerry Brown's support from public-employee unions.  We hear excerpts that illustrate what the campaign for Governor sounds like apart from TV commercials. With another debate already cancelled and just one more to go, will voters ever hear about their differences on the budget, spending cuts and taxes? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, in states they were counting on to maintain control of the Senate, Democrats are facing unexpected challenges. We hear what's typical and what's not, about Wisconsin, Connecticut and West Virginia, including some choice TV commercials.
