    Washington Week [#5719] Republican leaders and the White House are saying that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore should step aside if allegations that he had inappropriate relations with teenagers when he was in his 30s (link is external) are true. Moore is denying the charges and says he will continue his campaign to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.

    *We will take a closer look at the controversial political career of this former judge and explain why the December 12 special election could be pivotal for both parties.

    *Democrats claimed big wins in the 2017 election from coast to coast, raising questions about Republicans ability to maintain their majority after next year's midterm elections.

    *A strong showing by an inspired and diverse Democratic electorate in Virginia's urban centers and college towns, and suburban Washington, DC turned a gubernatorial race considered too tight to call into a blow-out victory for Democrats. It was a similar story in the New Jersey governor's race, where a first-time Democratic candidate defeated the sitting lieutenant governor.

    *GOP Speaker Paul Ryan says the losses are not a rejection of President Trump's agenda, and he and fellow House and Senate Republicans remain focused on passing tax reform. But while Ryan and party leadership try to stay focused on their legislative agenda, sixteen Republican members of Congress have announced they are not seeking re-election next year.

    *On the other side of the world, an unexpectedly low-key President Trump continues his 12-day trip to Asia. Arriving in China, Trump delivered effusive praise to Chinese President Xi Jinping saying China deserves "great credit" for "taking advantage" of the U. S. on trade

    *He then argued that a level economic playing field would improve the two countries' relationship. The president is also trying to convince Xi to work with the U.S. to defuse North Korea's nuclear threat to the region and beyond.

    *Robert Costa discusses Trump's high stakes visit to Asia and analyzes the results and repercussions of Tuesday's election with:

    Great Performances [#3409#] In The Heights: Chasing Broadway Dreams In a journey reminiscent of the unexpected zeitgeist success of Hair, A Chorus Line, and Rent, the story behind the success of In the Heights is so organic to New York City that no one expected it to happen. Beginning at a small, off-Broadway theater, a group of talented young artists led by composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda produced an original musical that some have called a modern day West Side Story-a Latin and Hip-Hop-infused musical odyssey telling the story of a neighborhood and the first-generation Americans who call it home. And yet, many in the show's audiences have nothing to compare it to as it represents the first musical that they've journeyed below 125th Street to see. Opening on Broadway in spring 2008 and going on to win five Tony Awards-including Best New Musical-In the Heights on Broadway follows the cast and creative team as they embark on the greatest adventure of their young careers. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG
