This is Richard Murdoch the Republican nominee. Morning it's Tom Donnelly the Republicans have controlled the seat for 36 years it should've been a slam dunk. But Murdoch made controversial comments on rape and abortion and now that -- is at risk for Republicans if they lose both of those it will be virtually impossible to win control of the senate. My third one to watch is actually a house seat house of course all 435 members. That's in Minnesota Michelle Bachmann running for reelection of course.
