Key Senate Races Keep Republican Hopes Alive

Hosted by

Wisconsin's Democratic Senator Russ Feingold bucked his own party on bank bailouts and the troop surge in Afghanistan.  He was the only vote against the Patriot Act, and he has his name on campaign finance reform.  Democrats thought he was independent enough to survive this year's anti-incumbent, anti-Washington sentiment… but maybe not. We hear about jobs and the economy, the President’s unpopularity, anti-incumbent sentiment and a pink marble driveway in Florida.
