Moderator: Gwen Ifill. With Election Day rapidly approaching "Washington Week" takes a look at the races to watch. Close contests around the nation leave control of the Senate to be determined as well as the breakdown of Democrats to Republicans in state houses. And several House races are too close to call even as some experts say that the House will remain in Republican hands....or will it? From Texas, independent producer Paul Stekler has a special report on voter turnout in the president's home state. Joining Gwen around the table for this pre-election episode of "Washington Week" is David Broder of The Washington Post, Rick Berke of The New York Times, Jeff Birnbaum of Fortune magazine and Jeanne Cummings of The Wall Street Journal.
