    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5416H] Five days and counting until the mid-term elections and only two things are certain: polls show a number of key Senate races are tightening and the push to motivate voters to cast their ballots is intensifying.
    The big prize for Democrats and Republicans - winning control of the Senate and in turn the ability to shape the legislative agenda in 2015 and beyond. There are 36 Senate seats up for grabs but polls show winning the majority may come down to ten competitive races in Colorado, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Georgia, Alaska, Kentucky and Iowa.
    Joining Gwen Ifill to examine the competitive races that could determine control of the Senate; the contests where Democratic and Republican incumbents are facing tough reelection challenges; how public dissatisfaction with Washington gridlock may factor into the midterm elections; and how the elections next Tuesday set the stage for the final two years of Barack Obama's presidency: Molly Ball of 'The Atlantic,' Karen Tumulty of 'The Washington Post,' Amy Walter of 'The Cook Political Report' and Jeff Zeleny of 'ABC News.'

    Dynasty on Display
    The San Francisco Giants are the talk of the town after knocking off the Kansas City Royals in Game 7 of the World Series. Friday's parade was a sea of black and orange, as fans packed Market Street to cheer a team that defied the odds to capture its third championship in five years. It's been an amazing journey for a club that many counted out after injuries and a nasty losing streak left them struggling during the summer. Scott Shafer hears from Marty Lurie about this "group of warriors" and what's next for them.

    • Marty Lurie, KNBR

Criminal justice reform and health care are on the state ballot, plus two local measures propose to tax soda in Berkeley and San Francisco. Several key races remain competitive, from Mike Honda and Ro Khanna's battle for a Congressional seat in Silicon Valley, to the mayor's race in Oakland.

    David Campos vs. David Chiu in District 17 Assembly Race
    The two candidates vying for State Assembly District 17 have worked for years side by side on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Now David Chiu and David Campos are locked in a tight race for the seat held by termed-out incumbent Tom Ammiano. Both candidates are progressive Democrats and have a lot in common, but now they're calling attention to their differences. David Chiu supported a tax break for social media giant Twitter in exchange for setting up shop in the blighted Mid-Market area. He also sponsored recent legislation to regulate - but still allow - short-term rentals popularized by Airbnb. David Campos, originally from Guatemala, is an outspoken advocate for affordable housing and renter protections. He also voted to allow Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi to keep his job in spite of a domestic violence incident.
