Mid-term elections are just two weeks away, and a frenzy of campaigning from President Obama, First Lady Michelle, and the Tea Party express is about to get underway.

Takeaway managing producer, Noel King, and Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC Radio, explore what's ahead this week as we get close to election day.

They'll also look at what's in store for Obama's health care reform as another challenge to repeal it pops up; what some of the biggest banks in the world's earnings will look like as they report this week; and what's on the agenda for the third round of U.S.-Pakistan strategic talks starts.
