Washington Week

Episode #4218

Moderator: Gwen Ifill. With Election Day rapidly approaching "Washington Week" takes a look at the races to watch.

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.
