We’ve been focused on local elections and the presidential race; today we'll look at the national picture and how the balance of power in Congress may shift. How many seats do Republicans need to take the Senate? Can Democrats win back the House? Jill Jackson of CBS News joins us with a look at the races to watch.

Also this hour, we hear about a new collaborative encyclopedia of Puget Sound waters; food writer and organic gardener Amy Pennington shares tips for stocking an urban pantry; and ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro stops by with a song. Below is his performance of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with Charles Yang on violin.
